Lemon Butter Garlic Shrimps with Charred Beans

This recipe is perfect for days, when you feel you’re short on time, need a light lunch and want to whip something up with minimal ingredients. I put these delicious Shrimp with charred beans on a plate in under 20 mins

I like using raw frozen shrimps, that are peeled and deveined, saves a lot of time, come in handy whenever required and I personally don’t like cleaning shrimps. Let’s dive into making this beautiful bowl full of health and flavour, Shall we?

You’ll need:

20-25 Raw frozen Shrimps

1 cup Green Beans, ends chopped off

6-7 Garlic cloves finely chopped/ minced

4 tablespoons room temp butter

Salt and paprika, you can also use pepper

2 tbsp lime juice

5-6 leaves of Basil, finely chopped

2 tbsp olive oil, 1 each for green beans and shrimps

1 tsp Italian seasoning – Optional


Lets start by thawing the frozen Shrimps under running cold water in the sink for about 10 mins. Once tender, rinse and add a quick squeeze of lime juice, helps mask any fishy smell

Then, heat a non stick pan and add 1 tbsp olive oil at medium high heat. Let the oil heat for about 40 secs and add green beans, salt, Italian seasoning and pepper. Stir Fry until those look nice and charred. Mine took about 4-5 mins. Empty into your serving dish/bowl

In the same pan, add 1 tbsp olive oil, and add the shrimps. Using a pair of tongs, constantly keep tossing them till they look nice and pink on both sides takes about 2 mins each side

Now turn the heat to low and add in your minced garlic, salt, paprika, chopped bail leaves, butter and lime juice. Keep tossing for about 2-3 mins till they’re nicely glazed in the buttery gravy and your Shrimps are done. Immediately remove in the serving bowl to avoid any overcooking

Add in some more lime juice if needed and serve hot with choice of sides. This bowl goes really well with some Italian bread or fried rice!

Enjoy a healthy, delicious bowl of Buttery Lemony Garlicky Shrimps
