Giovanni's Hawaiian Food Truck Garlic Shrimp
June 21, 2018
"This food truck can be found in the North Shore of Oahu. The garlic shrimp is famous! They serve it shell on, but I find I get more sauce on the shrimp if I cook it peeled and deveined. Prep time does not include peeling and deveining....I usually buy mine already peeled and deveined at the fish market."
Combine the flour, paprika, and cayenne pepper in a dish and toss the shrimp in the mixture to coat.
Heat a large skillet over low heat. Add the butter, oil, and garlic. Allow the garlic to cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
Raise the heat to medium and add the shrimp in a single layer. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on one side, then turn the shrimp and cook for 3-4 minutes on the other side.
Add salt, and cook for another minute or two. Squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice over the shrimp.
Serve immediately with a side of white rice and a lemon wedge.
