Ingredients for Buttery Lemon Shrimp:
As mentioned it’s made using simple, everyday ingredients like:
- Shrimp – I’m using fresh cleaned raw shrimp
- Lemon – juiced
- Butter – I’m using full-fat butter but any light salted butter can be used as per your taste.
- Olive Oil
- Spices – salt, chili powder, garlic powder
- Corn Flour – optional & used for extra crispy shrimp texture
- Green Giant® Riced Veggie Blends – Cilantro Lime
How to make Butter Lemon Shrimp:
The recipe can be divided into two parts:
Cooking the Shrimp:
We start by adding the spices + cornflour to the washed dried raw shrimp.
Then mix everything evenly using a fork or hands. (wash hands carefully every time you touch meat/seafood).
Then heat half butter + oil quantity in a non-stick pan or heavy bottom pan. We add some olive oil in the butter to help it heat evenly and not burn.
Add the coated shrimp and sauté unless crispy on both sides.
Remove the cooked shrimp to another plate.
Making the Lemon Butter Sauce:
Lemon butter pair is unlike any other food pairing you’d have tasted. It’s dreamy creamy and the lemon cuts the richness from the butter and turns this sauce into a golden magical deliciousness that you cannot have enough of.
- You heat the remaining butter + oil mixture in the pan.
- Add leftover seasoning and sauté for a minute.
- Then add the juice of lemons and stir evenly.
- After the first boil, add the shrimp and sauté everything together making sure the crispy shrimp are coated with the delicious lemon sauce.
- Add some freshly chopped cilantro and the recipe is cooked.
This entire recipe took us less than 20 minutes to make and now comes the easiest part – making the side.
We are serving this with Green Giant® Riced Veggie Blends – Cilantro Lime which is super easy to make and no post-cleanup too.
Here are some more details about these blends:
