Ingredients

  • 21 oz extra-large raw tiger shrimp peeled and cleaned
  • 4 large garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1/2 cup light chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice from about 2 lemons
  • 1/2 tsp salt I use Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley or cilantro finely chopped

Instructions

  • Melt the brown butter or ghee in a saute pan set over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, salt and pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes until the garlic is nice and fragrant.
  • Add the chicken stock and lemon juice and bring to a simmer, then throw in the shrimp and give them a quick stir.
  • Cover and let the shrimp cook until they are completely pink and no longer translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve.*

Notes

*You can serve this dish with pasta, rice, quinoa, couscous or even zoodles (you can mix any of these right in if you want) and garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.
