  • Sautee butter with gralic salt and shrimp for a few minutes and serve over rice or pasta...pretty simple turns out pretty well anytime ive made it..just gotta be careful not to make it too salty

  • what previous poster said, and low low heat too because it lets the flavors mingle. the shrimp are donw when they turn whitish and curl up,a nd it doesnt take long. You can use fresh garlic and then you can control the salt better. I like to use kosher course salt versus table, or even sea salt because its not as strong as table salt. for a zip add a tiny teeny amount of crushed red pepper flakes, or use garlic powder instead of garlic salt.
