Proceed to mince the garlic cloves, chop the parsley and extract the lemon juice. Preserve them all.

Put a frying pan on medium heat, pour the olive oil and add butter. Now add the shrimps, garlic and pepper.

Mix all the ingredients added and cook for about 3 minutes, until shrimps take a pink aspect. Shrimp should not be cooked for more than three minutes because they will lose the tender consistency of their meat.
