The flavor combination of garlic, butter and shrimp of this pan-seared recipe is nothing short of perfection. And since 2015 is the “Year of Eating Healthfully” for me and my family, I made sure that this Pan-Seared Jumbo Shrimp with Garlic Lemon Butter dish is healthy, flavorful and extremely delicious.

Serve it as an appetizer or a main entree if you wish. Sprinkle some red pepper flakes for an extra kick.
