Preparation

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the minced garlic to the skillet and sauté for about a minute, or until fragrant. Be careful not to let it brown, as it can become bitter.
  3. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn pink and opaque.
  4. If using white wine, pour it into the skillet and allow it to simmer for a minute or two to reduce and infuse the flavors.
  5. Stir in the lemon juice and lemon zest. This will add a bright, citrusy flavor to the dish. If you prefer a creamier sauce, you can add the butter at this stage.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If you like a bit of heat, you can add a pinch of red pepper flakes as well.
  7. Just before serving, sprinkle the fresh parsley over the shrimp. The parsley adds a burst of freshness to the dish.
  8. Serve the shrimp with lemon and garlic sauce hot, over cooked rice or with a side of crusty bread to soak up the delicious sauce.
