This easy lemon pepper garlic shrimp recipe is buttery and tasty. It is super easy one-pot meal that is ready in under 15 minutes. I love shrimp, and this is a good recipe if you have good shrimp at hand. You can have this as it is for dinner or pair it with some tasty coconut rice. It is a paleo as well as keto recipe that is high protein and super nutritious.

To make this recipe vegan, omit the butter and use only olive oil. This is a very versatile recipe as you can have it as an appetizer by serving it with a dip. You can also pair it with rice for a quick and tasty dinner.

Here is my easy lemon pepper garlic shrimp recipe:

Ingredients:

1 lb. or 500 g. shrimp peeled and deveined

2 tsp. garlic minced

1 tsp. black pepper

2 tbsp. butter

1 tbsp. olive oil

Salt to taste

1 lemon

Garnish

spring onion greens and lemon slices

Recipe:

Peel, devein and wash the prawns.

Add together minced garlic, fresh pepper powder along with salt and lemon juice. Rub it on shrimp and keep aside.

Heat butter and oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add the marinated shrimp and cook on both sides till nice and browned. Don’t overcook the shrimp.

It takes only about 1- 2 minutes on each side for the shrimp to curl up and turn pink. They will get a nice brown colour too.

Spoon the leftover sauce on the shrimp and serve with lemon slices and chopped spring onion greens. You could also serve with a dip.

Pro-Tips

  1. Choose good quality, fresh shrimp. You can also use frozen and thawed shrimp for this recipe. I have used medium-sized shrimp.
  2. Remember to take the shrimp off the pan quickly because they will continue to cook even after you take them off the heat. They MUST NOT overcook.
  3. This is a spicy recipe. If you want less heat, reduce the black pepper.
  4. To make this recipe vegan, just use olive oil in place of butter.

Your gorgeous lemon pepper garlic prawns are ready to serve and so very easy too.
