Black & Red Pepper Shrimp

The genius that gave me the Beer Bread recipe also taught me this gem.  I would describe this as an elevated Shrimp Scampi.  It is absolutely backed with garlicy-lemony goodness, and when you dip in that buttery thick Beer Bread – YUM.


1 lb 25-30 count Raw Shrimp with Tails & Shells

3 tbsp Minced Garlic (about 5 cloves)

1 large Lemon, zested then sliced

1 stick Unsalted Butter

1 tsp Salt

½ tsp Black Pepper

¼ tsp Red Pepper Flakes

Take a large skillet, and melt the butter over medium/high heat.  Meanwhile, chop the garlic and zest the lemon, then slice it roughly ¼ inch thick.  Once the butter is melted, toss in the garlic and lemon zest and stir until fragrant (about 1 minute).  Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir.  Place the skillet in a 350° for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through to ensure all shrimp are evenly coated with the butter and garlic.  Serve with Beer Bread and enjoy!
