How to make garlic butter shrimp!
Garlic Butter Shrimp is literally quick and easy to cook. I started by melting the butter in medium heat. The olive oil was poured once the butter completely melted. It will not take long until the olive oil and butter mixture gets hot enough to cook the shrimp.

Once the oil is hot enough, add the garlic and let it cook until the color turns light brown. Slowly and gently slide the shrimp into the pan. I will advice you dry the shrimp as much as possible to prevent the oils from splattering while adding it. Start to stir-fry the shrimp until the color turns orange. This will be your queue to add the salt. Start to add half a teaspoon first and then taste it.
