Hawaiian garlic shrimp tastes like the ones you can buy from foodtrucks in Hawaii, with juicy shrimp cooked in a delicious, rich butter-based garlic sauce. The recipe is suitable for 4 people.
450 g extra large shrimp, e.g. Argentine wild shrimp, peeled and intestines removed
1/2 dl garlic cloves
1 tablespoon flour
1.5 teaspoons paprika powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
Put the shrimp in a bag. Sprinkle with flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper as desired. Shake the bowl, so all the shrimp is evenly covered with the flour mixture.
Melt the butter with the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds until it starts to smell good. It should not turn brown.
Spread the shrimp in an even layer in the frying pan. Fry them pink on one side, it takes about 2 min. Turn them over and fry two min. on the other side too. It is important that they do not fry for too long, because then the consistency will be like elastic. Remove the frying pan from the heat, squeeze lemon juice over and sprinkle with parsley. Serve right away, with extra garlic butter sauce from the frying pan and a good loaf of bread.
