  • 1/2 lemon, to squeeze the finished dish
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons of dry white wine
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • Half a teaspoon of salt
  • 1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined


  • Combine salt, pepper, and paprika, then sprinkle over shrimp and toss to combine.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium/high heat. Once hot, add shrimp and cook for 1-2 minutes per side, until fully cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the pan and cover to keep them warm.
  • In the same skillet, add garlic and butter and stir over medium heat for 1 minute until fragrant, stirring frequently so that garlic does not burn.
  • Pour in wine and broth and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the shrimp back to the skillet. Add fresh parsley and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Squeeze fresh lemon juice over shrimp, as desired. Stir gently to combine the shrimp and serve immediately.
