Recipe Notes

– Cook shrimp in a mixture of butter and oil combination to prevent the butter from burning.

– Be careful with cooking shrimp, do not overcook the shrimp. They only require a few minutes of cooking and if you overcook them they will get chewy. Cook until they are opaque pink in color.

– Feel free to give additional vegetables such as bell peppers or mushrooms for added variety and flavor.
