Hawaiian Style Garlic Shrimp Recipe
What You Need To Make This Hawaiian-Style Garlic Shrimp Recipe:
Raw Shrimp: Use extra large size approximately 21 to 30 counts per pound. Peel and devein the shrimps unless you prefer to leave the shells on.
Unsalted Butter: You can use salted butter if desired and do not over-season the shrimps.
Olive Oil: You can swap it with regular or extra virgin oil if needed.
Garlic: I used a medium size head of garlic.
All-purpose flour: This makes the buttery sauce stick to the shrimp.
Paprika: Use standard sweet paprika as smoked may overpower the garlic flavor.
Cayenne pepper: It adds a light kick to the dish. Add more if you prefer it spicier or omit it if you do not like heat.
Lemon juice: Fresh lemons provide the best results.
Parsley: Optional. This adds an enticing finish and mild flavor to the dish.
Salt and Pepper
