  • 20 deveined, shelled with tails on large shrimp
  • salt, pepper, cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp room temperature butter
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • grated parmesan cheese

  • Step 1

    Defrost shrimp if needed and pat dry to remove excess water. Season with salt, pepper, and a touch of cayenne pepper if desired. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Combine softened butter, minced garlic, and parsley in a bowl to form a creamy paste.

  • Step 3

    Add oil into a skillet on medium heat, followed by the shrimp. Cook until the shrimp turns pink in color, then add the prepared garlic-butter paste. Stir around and cook until the shrimp is evenly coasted with the sauce, about a minute or two.

    Stir in honey and lemon juice, and remove from heat once everything is thoroughly combined. Garnish with freshly grated parmesan cheese and parsley, and serve warm with a side of toasted bread and/or pasta.
