  • 1.5 lbs Large Shrimp
  • 4 tbsp Unsalted Butter

  • 2 medium Lemons juiced
  • Kosher Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Red Chili Flakes
  • Chopped Parsley

  1. Preheat a medium high heat fire (around 350F) for direct cooking. Add a cast iron skillet to the fire about 1 minute before cooking.
  2. First, add your olive oil and butter to melt in the skillet. Next, add the minced garlic and let it brown for 90 seconds. Once browned, add all of your shrimp to the skillet (make sure to not fully overcrowd the pan), season with salt & pepper then cook for about 90 seconds on the first side. Flip the shrimp over and then deglaze the skillet with the white wine and the lemon juice. Stir and little and continue to cook the shrimp for another 1-2 minutes until fully done. When the shrimp are done, pull the whole skillet off the fire to cool.
