Let's not waste any more time and jump right into the recipe:


  • Large raw shrimp (1/2 pound tail-off, peeled, deveined)
  • Garlic (3 large cloves)
  • Olive oil (2 tbsp)
  • Butter (1 tbsp)
  • Lemon juice (From less than 1/2 lemon)
  • Fresno pepper (1 pepper)


  • Paprika powder (1 1/2 tsp)
  • Chili flakes (1 tsp)
  • Salt and pepper

  • Parsley (1/2 cup, chopped)
  • Lemon (cut into 4 equal parts)
  • Low carb taco tortillas


  1. Put thawed shrimp in a bowl and add all the spices (except chili flakes). Mix them gently and set aside.
  2. Chop garlic cloves into extra-thin slices or grate them. Chop 1 tbsp of parsley and the Fresno pepper into small cubes.
  3. Heat a pan and add olive oil. Add the shrimp one by one and fry both sides. Make sure you don't overcook them because they'll continue cooking during the rest of the process.
  4. Remove the shrimp from the pan and add the garlic to the same oil.
  5. Fry the minced garlic and add chili flakes, frying them together without burning them.
  6. Add butter and mix well while frying. Then, add salt and lemon juice. Let them fry together until the sauce thickens.
