Garlic Butter Shrimp is so easy to cook. The main reason we don’t prepare this more often is that shrimp is quite expensive.  Today my mom got half a kilo for Bubu which she graciously shared with us. 🙂

Here is my recipe for Garlic Butter Shrimp.

  • medium-sized pan
  • tongs


  • 500 grams shrimp
  • Sprite
  • 8 tbsps Anchor butter 1 stick
  • half a head of garlic, minced


  • Wash and clean the shrimp by cutting the whiskers short and place in a clean bowl.
  • Pour in enough Sprite to cover and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Heat a saucepan and melt the butter. Add the minced garlic and mix. You want the taste of the garlic and butter to really incorporate.
  • Using tongs, arrange the shrimp in the saucepan so that all the pieces are flat and swimming in the butter. Lower the flame and cover.
  • After 1 minute remove the cover and flip the pieces of shrimp. to properly cook the other side, too. Cook uncovered for 1 minute then turn off the stove.
  • Your dish is now ready to serve.


Plating the shrimp

Plating is important.  It makes the dish look even yummier than it already is.

  1. Get your serving dish (preferably one with a lip as this dish has a sauce) and carefully lay out the shrimp.  I suggest using tongs for this.
  2. Get a spoon and scoop out the garlic from the pan and place it down the center of the dish.
  3. Pour (or spoon) the butter sauce over the shrimp to make it look shiny and moist.
