Garlic Butter Shrimp Pasta

Garlic Butter Shrimp has got to be my second favourite Shrimp recipe. My all time favourite remains Thai Shrimp Curry, recipe HERE. What’s not to love though? It’s succulent large Shrimp infused in rich and lush Garlic and Butter goodness. You’re bound to be swooned by this amazingly delicious dish and that’s a promise.
