  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup minced garlic
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1.5 lbs of jumbo shrimp
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste


  • Start with a small pad of butter and your garlic in a medium fry pan. I uses my Anolon Frying Panwhich I absolutely love because it heats evenly, is metal utensil safe, and can be used in the oven up to 400 degrees.
  • Saute your garlic for a minute or so.
  • Add in the onion powder and paprika
  • Add in the rest of your butter, and let it melt.
  • Clean, devein, and shell your shrimp
  • Add shrimp into pan of melted butter and garlic, keep on medium heat.
  • Stir, flip, and help shrimp cook evenly, cook until pink through.
  • Pepper to taste
  • Serve with slaw, rice, etc.


Cook until just pink, cook time will vary based on the size of shrimp you use.
