Last year in June we took a trip to Maui with our close friends. You can read all about it –> HERE. We had the time of our lives and ate the most incredible food ever!! It definitely had me wishing we were going again this summer, but unfortunately with everything we’ve had going on the last couple months we just couldn’t. Mexico was on our minds too but we couldn’t do that either. Bummer for sure.
So I thought since I couldn’t go on an amazing Hawaiian vacation this summer I would just bring Hawaii to our dinner table! I found this incredible HAWAIIAN STYLE GARLIC SHRIMP off my good buddy Alyssa’s blog The Recipe Critic! Her recipes never disappoint and this one didn’t either. This shrimp was packed with buttery, garlic flavor and took me right back to the Lahaina shore. We loved every single bite!
- 1 pound large uncooked shrimp
- 5 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 4 Tablespoons salted butter, divided
