Brown butter garlic shrimp with pasta, incredibly easy and ready in 20 minutes. A laid back, flavor-packed weeknight dinner, luxurious in each bite. Everyone will enjoy this dish.
This pasta is buttery and garlicky with a touch of honey and lemon, tossed with chili flakes and fresh parsley.
I’m a huge shrimp lover, sautéed with garlic like this, I could eat it once a week, with rice, toasted bread or (and this is one of my favorites) over homemade fries. Mmmm, with all that butter, so delicious. If you cook anything in brown butter and garlic, I am gonna love it.
This shrimp recipe is too easy and too delicious not to make. The brown butter takes only a few extra minutes to bring out the rich and nutty flavor. Honey, lemon and garlic are so simple but add incredible flavor.
