10-Minute Garlic Shrimp Recipe: A Buttery, Lemony & Garlicy Shrimp Dinner Fast

"Such an incredibly gorgeous dish, while being (secretly) very, very simple and quick to prepare – we’re talking just 10 minutes, folks!" says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. "This recipe is buttery, lemony, perfectly seasoned and juicy! Ultra satisfying and so tasty!"

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 tablespoons clarified butter or ghee (divided)
  • 1 pound raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails on, if desired
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • a handful of chopped fresh parsley
  • additional lemon wedges, for serving

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Melt half of the clarified butter or ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in your shrimp in a single layer and season with sea salt and pepper. Cook undisturbed for 2 minutes. Flip the shrimp and continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes more, or until pink, curled and opaque. Set aside on a plate and cover to keep warm.
  2. In your same heated skillet add in the garlic and cook, stirring continuously for 30 seconds. Stir in the fresh lemon juice, crushed red pepper flakes and remaining clarified butter/ghee. Return your shrimp into the sauce and toss with the chopped parsley.
