Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

Inspired by the garlic shrimp served from food trucks along Oahu’s North Shore, this buttery shrimp is classically paired with “two scoops rice,” as they say there.

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 oz. (3/4 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp. sweet paprika
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 lb. extra-jumbo shrimp (16 to 20 per lb.), peeled, deveined, and patted dry
  • 3 Tbs. grapeseed or canola oil
  • 8 large cloves garlic, coarsely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup sake or dry white wine
  • 1-1/2 oz. (3 Tbs.) cold unsalted butter, cut into 3 pieces
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice

Preparation

  • In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, paprika, and 1-1/2 tsp. salt. Lightly dredge the shrimp in the mixture, shaking off the excess; set aside.
  • Heat a heavy-duty 12-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Add the oil, garlic, and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, until the garlic is tender, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove and reserve the garlic, leaving the oil in the pan.
  • Turn the heat up to medium high and add the shrimp in a single layer. Cook undisturbed for 2 minutes, then flip and cook until nearly opaque in the center, 1 to 2 minutes more. Add the sake and 1/2 tsp. salt and cook, flipping the shrimp once, until the liquid is reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Add the butter and the reserved garlic, and cook, swirling the pan, until the sauce is emulsified. Remove from the heat, add the cilantro and lemon juice, and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and serve.

    Wow. My family doesn't even like shrimp and they devoured this. They had about three servings each and complained that I didn't buy enough shrimp. Super fast and easy to make on a weeknight - make sure to do all of the prep though before you start cooking the shrimp because it cooks fast. Served with rice from my rice cooker. Will be making this again!

    Overall good weeknight meal. I didn't see what was really Hawaiian in this recipe so I added pineapple, spring onions, and I substituted lemon juice for lime juice. Tasty meal without too much effort.
