Yes, almost the same as my other recipe but 100% better! A little change went a long way. It is the best, I promise! I have NEVER in my life had better shrimp. My whole family was in heaven. OK, enough tooting my own horn!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large Ziplock freezer bag, mix everything except the butter and swish it around good to coat all of the shrimp. Or, mix everything in a large bowl and cover TIGHTLY with Saran wrap.
  2. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat large heavy bottom pan with the butter in it on medium. Toss shrimp around for about 10 minutes until pink and lightly browned.
  4. TIPS: Do not substitute with garlic powder OR dried parsley! Sea salt is stronger than table salt so use less than normal. Table salt can be substituted.
  5. Serve with steak or pasta with a white sauce.
  6. I KNOW THIS IS VERY SIMILAR TO MY OTHER SHRIMP RECIPE, BUT I MADE IT THIS WAY TONIGHT AND IT WAS SO UNBELIEVABLE THAT I HAD TO POST IT! EVEN BETTER THAN MY OTHER SHRIMP RECIPE!

When I read this recipe I thought... wow, that's a lot of garlic and parsley. But I made it... hoping that it wasn't like some where it's so garlicky that that is all you taste. Well, the parsley, gotta use fresh, and the garlic balanced each other perfectly. Every flavor came through brillantly! There's a lot of oil and butter left so I cooked up 8 oz. of linguine and just added that at the end to absorb the same flavors. My family loved it. I think next time I will add a little white sauce and see what I come up with. Thanks Bethany!

I must have done something wrong. Mine came out too garlicky (and I love garlic) and very slightly too salty (I used a teaspoon of sea salt). I'm going to try this again with half the salt and a little less garlic as I can see that it could be a great dish.

Garlicccccccccc! Yummy! This was a really wonderful recipe for garlic shrimp. I served mine over fettucine noodles. The only change I'll make next time (and it's just a family preference) is to half the amount of parsley. Everything else was perfect for us. One thing I didn't know about was if you added all of the marinating sauce to the saute pan or if you picked the shrimp out of the sauce first. I chose to include the sauce so it would coat my noodles.
