Sizzling Shrimp

Sizzling Shrimp



  • 2 lbs shrimp, shells on and deveined
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 t salt
  • 2 t pepper
  • 2 t red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 6 T clarified butter, warmed
  • 3 T compliant hot sauce

1. Marinate the shrimp for 20 minutes in a mixture of olive oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, lemon juice and garlic.

2. Mix the clarified butter and the compliant hot sauce together right before cooking shrimp. Set aside.

3. Over high heat on the stove, get a large pan really hot. Place your shrimp in a single layer in the pan and cook for 3 minutes a side. When almost finished cooking on the 2nd side, pour clarified butter mixture over the shrimp. If your pan is not big enough and you have to do them in batches, split the clarified butter into batches as well.
