The garlic butter shrimp recipe is a great way to cook shrimp to use in other dishes or as is as a snack. This garlic butter shrimp can be used as cooked shrimp to make New Orleans butter appetizer , served as one of the main entrées, peel and add to almost any green salad. Garnish with lemon and a lot of green dills!

I just tried recently interesting technique instead of traditionally adding salt to shrimp, I add salt butter. According to a Russian famous chef, this way we never oversalt shrimp (fish), shrimp take the right amount of salt from butter. The dish is super easy just follow my direction. How to fry shrimp right takes little experience because it toughens easily, cooked shrimp must be very soft. The time depends on the size of the shrimp and if cooked shrimp peels easily, it cooked right. The basic rule is don’t cook shrimp too long. We live in Louisiana and shrimp is a local ingredient on our market, so I practiced a lot to cook this delicacy. The best result is, of course, take for cooking fresh shrimp, not frozen. We have 2 kinds of shrimp, depending on the season and my favorite is brown shrimp for this dish.

4. Now add the shrimp but only one layer at a time. Fry for 2-4 minutes depending on the size of shrimp. When it turn completely pink fry 1 more minute and remove from skillet.

*I left the shells on for added flavor, but they may be removed before cooking if you prefer. Be careful, to not overcook shrimp or shells will be difficult to remove in this case.
