The best recipe for making shrimp

The most important tip I can give you is to be organized First You start cooking! Having all of your ingredients on hand is crucial – as with most shrimp recipes, this one is. fast.

  • I love using extra large or jumbo fresh prawns (or prawns) for a juicy mouthful! It is a huge bonus and will save you time if you can buy them ready to cook (peeled and prepared). I always keep them on the tails for more flavor but you can remove them.
  • To get some incredible crispy edges, toss your shrimp in oil first.
  • Season them with salt and pepper. You can also add in paprika, garlic or onion powder, the choice is yours! For this recipe I want to keep it simple to let the flavor of our shrimp really shine.
  • A splash of good quality dry white wine like a good Pinot Grigio or Sav Blanc to deglaze the pan is an optional addition and I highly recommend it when cooking this recipe. Those brown bits that stick to the bottom of the pan are full of flavor! They make a great addition to any sauce. you can do If you prefer, use chicken broth instead.

Serve Chili Garlic Butter Shrimp over garlic butter rice, noodles or pasta, with soft white dinner rolls or cheesy garlic bread, or vegetables (roasted cabbage, sautéed green beans, asparagus).
