Primal Skillet Garlic Shrimp

This dish is so easy to make and best of all it takes minimal time and ingredients.  Easy and Fast.  My kind of recipe.  Here you go....

Skillet Garlic Shrimp

1 pound of shrimp, wild caught
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
1 Tbsp of real butter (optional) - you can substitute olive oil or coconut oil if you have dairy issues

Serve with or over about 3 cups of primal rice

Peel your shrimp completely.  I run mine under cool water as I peel each one.  Rinse them well.  Place them in a plastic storage bag.

Mince your garlic cloves directly into the storage bag with the shrimp.  I have a handy-dandy garlic press gadget.  :-)  Add in the olive oil, pouring it directly over the shrimp.  Sprinkle in the sea salt (about four or five dashes should do). 

Close your storage bag (or container or whatever you use).  Shake and mix up your shrimp with the seasonings.  Move it all around so the shrimp are coated well.

Marinate it for at least an hour.  Do several hours or all day if you have the time.  The longer the better, especially if you love the garlic flavor and smell.  I left mine out on the counter at room temperature for about three hours.  Like this:

Heat a skillet on your stove to medium heat.  Place the 1 Tbsp butter in your skillet.  Or if you're dairy-free, use olive oil or coconut oil instead to coat the pan.  Spread the butter or oil around.  Then place your marinated shrimp in the skillet. 

Cook for about four minutes on medium heat.  Then reduce heat to low and cook for about another 3-5 minutes or until shrimp are tender.

Serve this with or over the cauliflower rice I've shared with you in the past!  It goes perfect together!  We ate ours with sauteed spinach and sweet carrots.
