Garlicky Old Bay Shrimp

This garlicky old bay shrimp is awesome!  It is a play on shrimp scampi but with old bay seasoning.  If you are from Maryland, you always have old bay seasoning!  I served this garlicky old bay shrimp with a lemon pappardelle pasta from Trader Joe's and it was perfection.  If you don't have this pasta, a linguine or fettucine pasta would be great too.  I just loved the garlicky old bay sauce tossed with the pasta.  Not only is this dish delicious but it is quick and easy, perfect for a weeknight meal.  Enjoy!

Garlicky Old Bay Shrimp

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
12 ounces frozen raw shrimp, thawed (about 31 to 40 large shrimps)
4 cloves garlic, finely diced
2 to 3 teaspoons old bay seasoning
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add in olive oil and butter.  Add in garlic once butter melts.  

Next, add in shrimp.  Season with old bay, salt and pepper.  

Cook shrimp until just pink, about 3 to 4 minutes.  

Toss with lemon juice and parsley.  

Serve shrimp with your favorite pasta.
