  • 1 1/2 pounds Raw Shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 tsp Italian Herb Seasoning herb blend alternative
  • 1/2 tsp Salt more or less to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 4 cloves Garlic large, minced
  • 1/4 cup Dry White Wine or chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes optional, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Chopped Curly Parsley
  • Warm Crusty Bread for serving


  • Season shrimp with garlic and herb seasoning, salt and black then set aside.
  • Over medium high heat, heat olive oil and butter in a large pan or skillet. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant. Then add shrimp, and sauté for 1-2 minutes or until starting to turn pink, then flip.
  • Pour in wine (or chicken broth if not using wine), and red pepper flakes (optional). Allow to simmer for about 2 minutes or until the alcohol burns off and wine reduces by half and remove from heat.
  • Add lemon juice and garnish with fresh parsley. Serve immediately and enjoy!


Cooking in a butter/oil combination, prevents the butter from browning. You may opt to use all butter, however it may begin to brown while your shrimp is cooking. Brown butter produces a nuttier flavour, it will still be delicious so the choice is yours!
