4 minutes spicy garlic shrimp

Spicy garlic shrimp is delicious served alone, with garlic noodles, steamed or fried rice, or perhaps with some linguine or spaghetti! After a long day, I’ll take it with some zooddles and a glass or two of wine for supper!

Spicy garlic shrimp

I’ve provided recipes for lemongrass shrimp and garlic shrimp, both of which you guys absolutely adored. I just felt like sharing some fiery garlic shrimp that are robust, bursting with flavors, textures, and personality!

After a long day, I’ll take some hot garlic shrimp with zucchini and a few glasses of wine for supper!

The entire cooking process, including melting the butter and sautéing the garlic, just takes 4 minutes! There is no reason not to prepare this meal at home for a midweek dinner.
