Garlic Shrimp


I’m tired of turkey. I still have turkey…yes from Thanksgiving. It’s headed to the freezer because I’ve had enough – think it’s time for some shrimp to mix it up! Was busy working on my wine class all day so I need something quick.  And I’m hungry. I came across a youtube video about Hawaii. I’d like to go to Hawaii but mostly I want to eat their food! So here’s a twist on a Hawaiian style garlic shrimp. Easy, quick and tasty coupled with some left over cornbread dressing (yes I still have leftover cornbread dressing) and a salad is a perfect meal. Even the hubby like it!


½ – 1 lb. shrimp (used 41-50 size but can be any)

3 – 10 cloves of garlic, minced (used 7)

4 tbsp. butter

1/3 cup of white wine

1/3 cup of flour

Dash of salt

Sprinkle of cayenne pepper (optional)

Tops of 1 green onion (optional)



  1. Melt 2 tbsp. of butter over medium heat. When it starts foaming add garlic for 1 min.
  2. While heating, coat shrimp lightly with flour.
  3. Add shrimp in a single layer in pan for 1 – 2 minutes or until shrimp are pink.
  4. Flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  5. Add wine, salt, cayenne, green onion and additional 2 tbsp. of butter scraping the bottom to create a sauce.
  6. Serve over rice or cornbread dressing and with a salad.
