  • Squeeze half a lemon over the completed meal.
  • 3 tablespoons finely minced parsley
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • a cup and a third of dry white wine
  • Unsalted butter, six teaspoons
  • Olive oil, 1 tbsp (or canola oil)
  • One-half teaspoon of paprika, ground
  • three teaspoons of chicken stock
  • Black pepper, ground, to taste
  • 0.5 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 pound of peeled and deveined raw big shrimp


  • Toss together the salt, pepper, and paprika before adding it to the shrimp.
  • In a large skillet, preheat the oil over medium-high heat. When heated through, add shrimp and cook for 1–2 minutes on each side. To keep the shrimp warm, take them out of the pan and cover.
  • Stirring often to prevent burning, add the butter and garlic to the same pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, until fragrant.
  • Cook for 3–4 minutes after adding the broth and wine.
  • Reintroduce the shrimp to the skillet. Cook for a further 1-2 minutes after adding fresh parsley.
  • As desired, drizzle fresh lemon juice over the shrimp. The shrimp should be combined gently before being served right away.
