Make a healthy and easy dinner recipe with just shrimp, butter, garlic and few seasonings!

My family has a deep love for shell fish and butter. My daughter recently drew out plans to create a machine that would make her all the crab legs and melted butter she could eat. We have a running joke regarding my husband’s love of all things lobster.  I usually pick up bags of frozen shrimp whenever they are on sale. Shrimp makes for a super quick and easy dinner because it thaws and cooks so quickly.

European Butter

The stars of this recipe are the butter, garlic and shrimp. I’m somewhat of a butter snob. I’m super picky about the brands we use. I figure if I’m going to eat butter, it better be really delicious. This was my first time cooking with Finlandia butter.  Finlandia Butter provides authentic flavor still made the old fashioned way.

Mandoline

This recipe is super quick and simple to make.  A mandoline to make zucchini noodles makes it even quicker!

Can you see all that garlic?! The butter sauce is pooled down below the zucchini noodles. Yum! This is such an easy and delicious meal. You have your meat, veggies and then serve with bread and butter on the side for a family dinner everyone will love.

Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 5 Tablespoons Finlandia salted butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely minced

  • 3 drops lemon essential oil

  3. Add shrimp to the pan and stir to coat in the butter and garlic. Cook until it just turns pink, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. When the shrimp is pink, stir in white wine. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat.
  5. Stir in lemon oil, pepper flakes and parsley.
  6. Serve over zucchini noodles.
