Garlic Butter Shrimp

Garlic Butter ShrimpOne of my greatest pleasures as a homemaker is seeing my family eat what I cook every single time. It motivates me to keep making meals for them and feeling proud that they’re eating healthy.

This shrimp recipe is one of our family favorites, especially my husband’s and eldest daughter’s. It’s simple, quick, and flavorful.

I prefer using headless shrimps with shell on in this recipe. Most people don’t like eating shrimps without removing the shells and veins. But you can absolutely use deveined shrimps if you want. I just don’t want to miss the flavor that the shrimp shells provide :-).
