Garlic Shrimp Garlic Shrimp is a Hawaii-style scampi, made popular by food trucks that exclusively sell this dish near the North Shore. These shrimp trucks are a staple for tourists and locals alike, but the price for a plate of Garlic Shrimp is often at a tourist rate. I developed this recipe more out of frugality than anything else. I love that I can make this delicious meal at home for a fraction of the regular price! Ingredients 2 pounds raw shrimp (peeled or tail-on) 50 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped 1/4 cup white wine 2 tbsp olive oil 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 tsp black pepper 3 tbsp clarified butter (or ghee) lemon wedges (garnish) Directions Combine the shrimp, garlic, wine, olive oil, salt and pepper in a resealable plastic bag. Place in the fridge to marinate for 2 hours. In a wok or skillet, add the clarified butter and melt it over medium heat. Strain out the liquid from the marinade and add the liquid to the butter; bring to a simmer. Add the shrimp and cook in batches, until mostly cooked through (mostly pink and opaque). Fish out the shrimp with tongs (be careful not to remove the garlic) and set aside in a colander that’s placed over a bowl (to keep the shrimp from getting soggy). Repeat this process until all of the shrimp is mostly cooked. You should have a lot of liquid and garlic left in your wok/skillet at this point. Increase the temperature to high, and reduce the sauce until the liquid evaporates and the garlic becomes golden brown and crispy, stirring constantly so as to not scorch the garlic, about 15 minutes total. At this point, the oil will start to accumulate at the top of the liquid, which is exactly what you want to look for. Return the shrimp to the wok/skillet and stir-fry, tossing often, until fully cooked, about 2 minutes. Serve over rice and with lemon wedges. Serves Four.
