North Shore Garlic Shrimp recipe

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


  • Ingredients
  • 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
  • .
  • Directions
  • 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!
