  • 1 lb jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon white cooking wine
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced


  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, toss the shrimp with the olive oil until fully coated.
  • Heat a large skillet with a splash of olive oil on medium-high heat.
  • Add the shrimp to the pan in a single layer without overcrowding the pan, cook 1-2 minutes on each side until the shrimp are pink and opaque. Just before the shrimp are finished cooking, add the butter, white wine, and garlic. Toss the shrimp in the garlic butter for about a minute. (I usually toss them around the pan for the full minute) Garnish with fresh herbs like dill or parsley, and serve!
