My husband is the shrimp LOVER in the family.  I have slowly grown to like it as time has gone on.  I promise to make him at least a couple of new shrimp recipes in a month.

I am not going to lie to you though.  I love how easy shrimp is to make.  This meal came together in under 15 minutes.  And the brown butter….  uh-mazing.

Brown butter makes the world a better place.  It only takes a few extra minutes to really bring out amazing nutty and rich flavor of brown butter.  And well worth it!

The spice and garlic add such great flavor to the brown butter shrimp.  This meal was incredible just tossed with some pasta.  The pasta also gets coated in the brown butter and is delicious.

If you are looking for an easy delicious meal for the family look no further.  It only takes 15 minutes to create this wonderful restaurant quality meal and is sure to please the family for dinner this week!

  1. Just the words “brown butter” make my mouth water. I love the idea of tossing the shrimp with pasta. Sautéed garlic shrimp is a popular tapas, but that doesn’t make a meal. Pasta with shrimp is more like it.

  2. This looks delicious. I haven’t had shrimp in forever! Thanks for sharing =)

  3. thank you for this, love the brown butter seafood combo, I’m thinking this might also work well with scallops?
