Garlic Shrimp

We had this tonight. I halved the recipe because I knew if we had the entire thing we would have eaten it! I also made mine dairy free so I can only imagine how much better it would have tasted with actual butter. We had it served over whole wheat spaghetti garnished with lemon and fresh parsley. I imagine it would be good over rice as well. This will definitely be a go-to recipe when I can buy shrimp on sale because it was super fast and super easy!


2 lbs shrimp (fresh or frozen, shelled)

1/2 cup light olive oil

2 Tbsp butter

12 garlic clove, minced

1 Tbsp flour

1 cup chicken broth

1/4 tsp salt


1. Prepare your shrimp. If frozen, thaw out. Pat dry so the excess water doesn't mess up the sauce.

2. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about a minute.

3. Add flour a little at a time to avoid clumps. Stir well. Add chicken broth and salt.

4. Add shrimp. If raw cook 4-5 minutes until they turn pink. If cooked, just heat them up 2-3 minutes over medium-low heat.
