Simple Shrimp Scampi

This Garlic Butter Shrimp recipe is easier than you think, made with wine or without will be the highlight of your dinner table. Elegant, garlicky, and buttery, serve as an appetizer, in pasta, over rice.

Melt 3 tablespoons of butter and add oil in a large skillet or pan over medium heat. Stir constantly for butter not to get brown.

Once melted, add garlic and saute just until fragrant (30 seconds). Add prawns and cook until they start to turn light pink. 

Season with salt and pepper. Add broth and red pepper flakes, and turn heat to medium-low. Simmer until the liquid is reduced in half.

Finally, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter, squeeze in fresh lemon juice, and stir in fresh parsley.
