Last time I was in Hawaii was about 8 months ago. And I was craving garlic shrimp, especially the ones I ate in North Shore! It had been awhile since I last made them and decided tonight was the night !
North Shore Garlic Shrimp Recipe
- 20 extra large shrimp, deveined (you can keep the shell on for more flavor, but I took it off)
10-15 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped (love garlic, the more the better!)
½ cup flour
2 tablespoons paprika
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ stick butter
1/8 cup white wine
2 tablespoons butter
- 1. Rinse and thaw your large shrimp in cool running water. Lightly pat dry and season with salt.
- 2. In a bowl, mix the flour, paprika and cayenne pepper. Then, thoroughly coat each piece of shrimp on both sides in this mixture.
- 3. Heat a pan on high.
- 4. Add the butter and garlic and stir for about 1 minute.
- 5. Then add all of the shrimp that was coated in the flour mixture. Saute for about 3 minutes on each side.
- 6. After 3 minutes on the second side, add the 1/8 cup of white wine and 2 tablespoons butter. Saute the shrimp, turning over occasionally.
- 7. Remove shrimp immediately and serve with two mounds of sticky steamed calrose rice and a lemon wedge, spooning extra garlic butter sauce over the rice and shrimp.
Now you don’t have to fly all the way to Oahu to eat this fabulous garlic shrimp. It’s so easy to make and tastes great! Enjoy!
