How To Make Hawaiian Style Garlic Shrimp

This garlic shrimp is cooked Hawaiian-style in just 20 quick minutes with salted butter, sea salt, pepper, paprika and lemon.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 20 minutes



  • 1lbwhite shrimp
  • 5tbspextra virgin olive oil,divided
  • 4tbspsalted butter
  • 3headsfresh garlic,minced
  • 1lemon
  • ½tspcourse Hawaiian sea salt,regular sea salt is okay
  • ¼tsppepper
  • ¼tsppaprika


  1. In a medium skillet on medium low heat, add 4 Tablespoons olive oil, 2 Tablespoons butter, and minced raw garlic. Saute the garlic until it is brown, tender and caramelized.

  2. Add the salt, pepper, paprika, remaining butter, 1 Tablespoon olive oil, and juice of one lemon. Let the sauce develop and carefully add the shrimp in one layer in the pan.

  3. Shrimp cook quickly and only take about 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Once the shells have turned a lovely pink orangeish color, it is time to flip them. Do not overcook them or they will be rubbery and tough.

  4. Serve the shrimp with rice and to get the full Hawaii effect, use the leftover garlic sauce to serve on top of the rice.
