To make the Garlic Butter Shrimp, the Shrimps are seared in garlic butter and sprinkled with parsley. This recipe of Garlic Butter Shrimp is a very simple preparation. These garlic butter shrimp have just a few ingredients (butter, medium shrimp, garlic, lemon, fresh parsley leaves) and can be on the table in minutes. They’re packed with flavor and perfect served with French baguette or over rice or pasta. The bigger the shrimp is, the better it tastes. For a better taste, I also recommend fresh chopped garlic.
