It’s been a minute since i’ve made seafood so I hope this will redeem myself for my “healthy” chicken obsession.

Shrimp is one of the healthiest foods you can possibly eat! Which is why it’s very popular among healthy junkies and pro athletes. It is not only one of if not the most lean meats in the world but it packs a high protein concentration which is really really good for building and maintaining strong muscles and making you feel full longer.

If there is a downside to eating shrimp it would be COST…now prices vary widely depending on where you live. In the Midwest fresh seafood can get pretty expensive so if I have the cash I will go fresh but otherwise it’s only the occasional frozen shrimp that I buy.

Another big plus in my book is this can fit any lifestyle or diet you might have that allows for fish. I must warn you that if you cook this dish exactly as I show here you will need to replace the after flavor with a good cleaning since I really can’t get enough garlic in whatever I eat and this calls for a very ridiculous amount imo.

Simple…tasteful and may I even say classy? I think so.
Let this dish be in your cooking repertoire to impress pretty much anyone guaranteed!

Instructions
  1. *If using frozen shrimp add to a colander and let cold water run over them for about 10 minutes or until mostly thawed. It's more important to thaw them enough so they don't stick together.
  2. Add your oil and butter to a high heat pot on the stove.
  3. Add your minced garlic and chopped onions and sauté for about one minute.
  4. Place your shrimp into the pot and cook on high heat roughly 4-5 minutes on each side or until shrimp has turned slightly red. *I use a covered method to increase my odds of fully cooked shrimp and I find it also has a nice cooking time decrease!
  5. Add chopped parsley, salt and pepper before turning heat off and letting cool for two minutes before plating. *This recipe makes 4 large portions or 6 smaller sized portions.
