I love going to those steak houses in Canada and eating those giant shrimp with cocktail sauce. Or a get-together, well, I am the first one looking for one of those shrimp rings.

To tell the truth, when I am back home, I still think that way. But here, there are no shrimp rings with cocktail sauce, but there are shrimp.

The first time I had Sautéed Shrimp was when I was newly married, and my husband and I were invited to our excellent friends’ house for dinner.

To make this delicious ITALIAN GARLIC SHRIMP you’ll need:


1 lb extra-large or jumbo RAW shrimp

1 stick butter

1 tbsp Italian seasoning

2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 lemon

1 tbsp minced garlic


Clean and devein the shrimp. (I buy shell-on deveined shrimp and just remove the shell )

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and sauté garlic for a 1minute.

Add shrimp and sprinkle on Italian seasoning. Cook covered for 2 minutes.

Squeeze halved lemon over shrimp and then sprinkle on Parmesan cheese.

Cook for another 1 minute or until shrimp turns white.

Add your favorite side and enjoy!
