Don't let the delicate looks and light lemony flavor deceive you: This seafood entree has an unexpected burst of heat! Of course, you can cut back on the jalapenos if you prefer a milder dish.


Are you making this? 
1 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoon Black pepper
3/4 cup All purpose flour
2 pound Shrimp; large, peeled, deveined and patted dry with paper towels
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoon Jalapeno pepper; minced
3 tablespoon Butter; cut into small pieces and kept cold
2 tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice

Original recipe makes 4



In a strong plastic bag, combine the salt, pepper, flour and shrimp. Shake well. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat until very hot but not smoking. Add half of the shrimp; don't crowd. Cook the shrimp until golden brown and crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes; remove and place on a warm plate. Add the remaining olive oil and continue with the second batch of shrimp. Return the first batch to the pan and add the jalapenos and garlic. Cook for an additional 30 seconds. Add the butter and lemon and turn off the heat. Stir the butter into the shrimp until just melted and creamy. Adjust the seasoning with additional salt and pepper if desired.

I definitely need a redo on this recipe so I can use bigger shrimp :-)

You know, I don't see any garlic listed in the ingredients & how much to use. This looks yummy though.
