  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp chicken broth


  • Peel and devein the shrimp if necessary. Dry them well with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the butter to a heavy-bottomed skillet and turn the heat to medium-high. When the butter starts to foam, add the garlic and stir it around for a minute until the garlic cooks.
  • Add the shrimp all at once, and keep them in one layer in the pan. Turn the shrimp over after a minute or two (depending on the size) and cook through.
  • Remove the shrimp from the pan and remove the pan from the heat. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest and chicken broth. Stir well to combine.
  • Pour sauce over the shrimp and garnish with a few lemon wedges. Dig in!
