Hawaiian Style Garlic Shrimp Recipe


  1. In a large skillet, over medium-low heat, add 4 Tablespoons olive oil and 2 Tablespoons butter. Let warm and stir until butter melts. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute until fragrant and caramelizes slightly.
  2. Add lemon juice, sea salt, pepper and paprika to skillet. Stir. Then add remaining oil and butter. Stir and continue to slowly cook for 2 minutes or so. Carefully, add shrimp to skillet.
  3. Cook shrimp in sauce for 3 to 5 minutes, on each side, until shrimp turns an orange/pink color. (Shrimp cooks very fast. Once you see that orange color on each side it is ready!)
  4. Serve shrimp over rice and pour sauce over the top. Enjoy!
