Buttered Garlic Shrimps

I am not a shrimp lover because my body always reacts negatively to it. I only cook shrimp but I seldom eat it.  The last time I cooked this is when I visited Ais in their old place at Bartley before we moved in together as housemates.

Here is a simple shrimp recipe cooked in butter and lots of garlic.


Ingredients:

Shrimps, washed and cleaned-  500 g.

Garlic, crushed and minced - 10 large cloves

Onion, diced - 1 medium bulb

Butter - 50 g.

Salt and ground pepper to taste

Note: do not remove shells and head of the shrimps, just remove the sharp part of the head and whiskers.

Cooking Procedure:

1) In a woke, melt butter and sauté garlic in it until it is aromatic and it is almost translucent in color.  Add the onion and fry it until it is translucent.

2) Stir in the shrimps, salt, and pepper. Stir it continuously until the shrimps turned orange in color.

3) Simmer for about 5 minutes and then remove from heat.

Dish out immediately. Do not cook shrimp for a long time as it will get rubbery.

Makes 4 servings . Here’s the estimated Nutritional values per serving based on the ingredients used.
