    TesB's Note:

    from America's Test Kitchen TV show. Their note: The cooking times below are for 21/25 shrimp (that is, the size of the shrimp is such that there are 21 to 25 in 1 pound). If 21/25 shrimp are not available, adjust cooking times slightly. Either a nonstick or traditional skillet will work for this recipe, but a nonstick will simplify cleanup.

    GARLIC LEMON BUTTER

    SHRIMP

    Directions:

    1. 1
      INSTRUCTIONS.
    2. 2
      Beat butter with fork in small bowl until light and fluffy. Stir in garlic, lemon juice, parsley, and 1/8 teaspoon salt until combined. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch skillet over high heat until smoking. Meanwhile, toss shrimp, salt, pepper, and sugar in medium bowl. Add half of shrimp to pan in 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 large plate. Repeat with remaining tablespoon 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.

      Excellent. The flavor combingation was perfect for us and the cooking time was right on. I used 12 oz of shrimp but used all the other ingredients as listed. Added a little extra lemon when serving. DH also used cocktail sauce that he spiced up with horseradish. We will for sure make this again and again as we love shrimp. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Spring 2012

      Great recipe. I had to use smaller shrimp, but still worked fine. The flavors in the butter are perfect. Looking forward to getting larger shrimp next time. Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
