Ingredients

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 head garlic

Instructions

  • In a bowl, combine shrimp and Sriracha chili sauce. Marinate for about 10 minutes.

Notes

  • To keep from overcooking, take the shrimp off the stove as their color changes. They will continue to cook in their residual heat, especially if you're serving them on a heated sizzling platter.
  • As the recipe requires quick, high-heat cooking, use equal parts of vegetable oil and butter. The butter will impart flavor and the oil will keep it from burning in the high heat.
  • Use a wide pan to allow enough space for the shrimp to cook. Don't overcrowd the pan as you don't want the shrimp to overcook in their steam.
  • Garlic is an important component. To draw out the full flavor without burning, add just when the butter begins to melt and the oil is warm (NOT hot!). Cook gently for a minute or two before raising the heat.
