    Alisa Lea's Note:

    This is so good and so simple to make. I made it tonight and my whole family raved about how good it was. I got the recipe from America's Test Kitchen.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Beat butter with a fork in a small bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in garlic, lemon juice, parsley and 1/8 tsp salt until combined. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat 1 tbs oil in a 12-inch skillet over high heat until smoking. Meanwhile toss shrimp, salt, pepper and sugar in a medium bowl. Add half of shrimp to pan in a single layer and cook until spotty brown and edges turn pink, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat; using tongs, flip each shrimp and let stand until all but very center is opaque, about 30 seconds. Transfer shrimp to a large plate.
    3. 3
      Repeat with remaining oil and shrimp; after second batch has stood off heat, return first batch to skillet along with flavored butter and toss to combine. Cover skillet and let stand until shrimp are cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges if desired.

      Really quick and easy. For the first time I got well cooked shrimp. The only thing I will recommend is adding chili flakes.

      Add a pot of cream right at the end of coking for extra yummyness, and serve over pilaf rice! xxx

      This was truly wonderful. I feel I finally know how to cook shrimp without over-cooking it. The family loved it. I liked the butter mixture especially and plan to use it on fish and other seafood.
