This spicy garlic shrimp recipe is absolutely AMAZING. Make it once and it will become one of your go-to recipes, just like it is mine.

It’s great as an appetizer. Makes a fantastic main dish, too – add a salad and some bread and you’re done.

Leftovers are best eaten straight out of the fridge. Preferably late at night.

What’s even better is that these spicy garlic shrimp really do take just four minutes to throw together. Toss the garlic & shrimp in the pan, add seasoning and lemon juice/zest, toss it all into a large serving bowl and go to town. Spicy garlic shrimp in just 4 minutes!

If you don’t want the spicy part of the spicy garlic shrimp, just omit the crushed red pepper flakes. The dish will still taste amazing! You could also toss them with pasta or even put them on a sandwich with some homemade mayo. But they’re really best served hot and fresh out the skillet, although if you serve them at a party you won’t need to worry if they cool to room temperature before they disappear – these spicy garlic shrimp are still great at room temperature.

I have a shrimp tip for you, too. Unless you live somewhere that you can get truly fresh shrimp straight off the boat that you’re certain is truly fresh, then buy it frozen. The shrimp in the seafood section of your grocery store has very likely already been frozen then thawed – and who knows how long it’s been thawed? If you buy a bag of frozen shrimp then you get to decide how long it will be thawed before cooking it. And it’s easy to thaw frozen shrimp – just place it in a colander and run cold water over it continuously until it’s all thawed, shaking the colander now and then the water runs over different pieces. It’s the best and easiest way to make your spicy garlic shrimp!

    A teaspoon of pepper flakes for me, please. I like it spicy! Great dish — I sometimes make something pretty similar to this. Can’t get enough shrimp, so this is perfect for me. Thanks.

    Don’t even bother getting a serving spoon. Just slide the whole skillet this way and I’ll be fine.
