  • 2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon flour
  • 12 oz. shrimp cleaned and deveined
  • ½ stick unsalted butter
  • 7 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Fresh chopped parsley optional for garnish


  • Place paprika, salt, black pepper, and flour in a large resealable bag. Shake well to mix.
  • Add the shrimp to the bag, seal it and shake to coat the shrimp with the flour mixture. Set aside.
  • Add the butter to a large 12 inch cast iron skillet. Once the butter has melted, add the chopped garlic, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until you see the garlic is translucent and dark. It will cook fast!
  • Remove the garlic from the pan and add olive oil to the pan. Once heated, add your shrimp to the pan.
  • Cook the shrimp over medium high heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Do not overcrowd the pan.
  • Once all the shrimp is cooked, pour the removed garlic over the shrimp right inside the skillet. Reheat, stir to combine and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
