Lemony Garlic Shrimp

Lemony Garlic Shrimp
Uber simple and very lemony. It's good for when you make a rich starch or if you want to put it in a salad to add a warm component. Heck, or just have it as an appie or a snack! ;)

Lemony Garlic Shrimp
(serves 2)

  • 1 lb raw shrimp, deveined and shelled
  • 1/2 small onion, finely diced
  • Juice of 1/3 of a lemon
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  1. In a small mixing bowl, mix together garlic, shrimp, a pinch each of salt and pepper. Set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Heat up a skillet over medium high heat. Add butter and olive oil. When butter and olive oil is heated, add onion and cook until just softened. Push the onions to the sides and add shrimp to the middle empty part of the skillet in one single layer.
  3. Once the shrimps start to curl, turn over to cook the other side for a few seconds until that side starts turning pink.
  4. Stir in lemon juice. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if necessary.
  5. Serve shrimp alone as an appetizer or over couscous, quinoa, pasta, in a salad, etc.
