Garlic Butter Shrimp

Serve over angel hair pasta for a complete meal.


  • 1 lb large raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons white wine

For serving:

  • Chopped parsley, for garnish
  • Angel hair pasta, cooked according to box directions, for serving


  • Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes, or until nice and fragrant.
  • Add shrimp and salt. Cook for couple minutes, until they just turn pink, turning them once half way.
  • Add the remaining butter and wine. Continue to cook until shrimp are opaque, stirring frequently, about 3-4 minutes. Don’t overcook them, or they’ll become tough and chewy.
  • If serving with pasta, remove the shrimp onto a plate and add cooked pasta into a skillet. Stir the pasta in the remaining sauce and serve.
