You may already know about my Sizzling Shrimp. When you start with gorgeous wild-caught Gulf shrimp like this, it’s hard to go wrong! These are an absolute no-fail, as easy as marinating the shrimp in a bit of olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, lemon rind, and red pepper flakes, then sautéing on a grill or a pan, and finishing it off in one of my MAGIC ELIXIRS, clarified butter and hot sauce. Be sure to check out the stories for all the details. When you make it, please tag me”¦I’d love to see your version! Let’s double the recipe, and in my next post, I’ll show you what to do with the leftovers!

  2. Mix clarified butter and hot sauce together right before cooking shrimp. Set aside.
  3. Over high heat on the stove, heat a large pan. Place shrimp in a single layer in the very hot pan and cook for 3 minutes a side.

If your pan is not big enough and you have to do them in batches, split the clarified butter mixture into batches as well.
