15 Minute Garlic Shrimp

Dinners can be hard. Especially with kids and a husband and laundry and work; the list can go on.  That is why this dinner is 15 minutes!  Yes! I said 15 minutes. 15 minute garlic shrimp changes the game.

That is what you will find on A Table Top Affair. It is so important to make dinner, to sit down at the table and communicate.  Take a break from everything going on in life – it will be there when the dishes are clean. But for a moment, breathe.

15 Minute Garlic Shrimp

  • Author: Abby Turner
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


This 15 minutes, one pot meal will leave you so happy and full that you will wish you made more for lunch tomorrow!


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 bag frozen shrimp, get the large or jumbo size
  • 68 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp butter, cubed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Veggies: I chose Asparagus (cut into 3 inch pieces) and Red Potatoes (quartered)


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high head. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant. Top with paprika.
  2. Take your thawed shrimp and cook them for about 1 minute searing both sides. Squeeze lemon juice over them and set aside on a plate. 
  3. Throw your butter into the pan along with your asparagus and quartered potatoes.  Cook for about 8 minutes flipping as needed.
  4. Add your shrimp back in the pan to heat back up and serve!


  • I like fresh garlic for this, but pre-minced garlic will work just fine as long as you include a little brine with the garlic.
  • A great alternative to frozen shrimp is the fresh shrimp ring.
  • I do not like my asparagus and potatoes soft – so this recipe makes a firm, sautéed asparagus and a nice crunchy potato (depending on how thick the potatoes are which quartered – the smaller the better)
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Category: Dinner
  • Method: Stove Top
  • Cuisine: Seafood
