Hawaiian bowl w. garlic lemon butter shrimp & pineapple
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • Shrimp recipe:
  • ½ - ¾ lb. raw tail-on shrimp, shelled and de-veined
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 lemons, juiced, divided
  • 5-6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • ½ tsp. cayenne
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 7 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. lemon zest
  • Hawaiian bowl recipe:
  • White basmati rice, cooked according to package instructions
  • Fresh pineapple, sliced
  • Lemon wedges, for garnish
  1. Add the shrimp to a gallon size Ziplock bag or medium size bowl. Add the olive oil, juice of 1 lemon, chopped garlic, 1 tbsp. fresh parsley, flour, cayenne pepper and pepper. Toss well to combine, then seal the bag or cover the bowl and place in the fridge for 1 hour, up to 24 hours.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, use a slotted spoon to scoop the shrimp out of the marinade and into the hot skillet; season with salt and pepper. Make sure to scoop up all the garlic. Saute the shrimp until pink, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  3. Remove the shrimp from the pan leaving the garlic in the skillet. Add the salted butter and 1 tsp. pepper to the skillet. Cook the garlic in the butter until it begins to caramelize and turn golden brown.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 tbsp. chopped parsley, the juice of ½ a lemon and zest.
  5. Drizzle with the warm garlic butter over the shrimp and serve alongside rice, fresh pineapple and lemon wedges. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley.
