Lemon Garlic Shrimp

Do you have a favorite shrimp dish? For the past few days, we have very cold weather in Montreal and felt like winter is coming soon. I didn't felt like going to grocery, instead tried to cook something out of ingredients we had at home. My parents tends to buy boxes of shrimps when they are on special, we probably have like a dozen of it at home. I ended up making a simple garlic lemon-flavored shrimps reduced in rice wine vinegar for the sauce and serve it over rice.

Serves 2-4
Preparation Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: 5 mins


40-50 medium-sized shrimps, peeled and deveined
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar or white wine
Parsley to garnish


1. In a skillet, heat oil and melt butter over medium heat.

2. Cook shrimp until it turns pink, about 1 min on each side. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.

3. Turn to high heat. Add lemon juice and wine, cook until liquid reduced by half, about 1 min.

4. Remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley. Serve.

  2. Shrimp and garlic are great together! I also like shrimp in black bean sauce...

  3. I love shrimps very much. This dish looks very mouth-watering....yum. Love the lemon garlic sauce.

  4. I'm always looking for shrimp recipes. Love this one. It would be wonderful over a nutty rice!

  5. I'm not really a shrimp fan, but if anything was to get me to try shrimp it would be a recipe with lots of lemon and garlic! I can imagine this would smell wonderful!
