Garlic Butter Shrimp


For my last no-meat dish, I’m sharing another shrimp recipe.


What I personally like about Garlic Butter Shrimp is that aside from the fact that it’s full of flavors, it’s also easy to prepare. It will only take 20 minutes of your busy schedule, giving you more time to do your other Holy Week customs.

•    2 lbs shrimp

•    2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped

•    ½ cup butter
