Who doesn’t like garlic butter? And better yet garlic butter shrimp? I was really in the mood for seafood because well, being low-carb/keto, you can only eat so much chicken, beef, and pork before you’re like, “ENOUGH!”
That is why I decided to create a shrimp dish. It’s a pretty classic recipe except for a few ingredients.
One, in particular, is Yuzu. A Japanese fruit that tastes like a mix of grapefruit, lemon, and mandarin. In dishes, it adds a tart citrusy element similar to that of a lemon.
If you want to just use lemon, that is fine as well although it won’t have the complexity that Yuzu possesses. Either way, with garlic butter you can’t go wrong so let’s get cooking!
Note: It’s best to have all ingredients ready as this entire cooking process goes very fast and overcooking can result in rubbery shrimp.
