There’s nothing better than warm garlic butter sauce poured over succulent shrimp with a fresh zest of lemon, piled high on a bed of pasta!
Well, that is unless you’re dairy free… until now!
I’ve partnered up with Melt to bring you a new dairy-free spin on this classic dish.
Melt is an organic blend of healthy oils and the perfect “butter alternative”. It’s made with the healthiest fruit & plant based oils including virgin coconut oil, hi-oleic sunflower, palm fruit and canola oils.
It “Melts” up just like traditional butter, but with half the saturated fat and fewer calories!
With the help of Melt, this butter-filled dish becomes a new healthy favorite!
- 8 tbsp Melt Organic (divided)
- 5 garlic cloves (crushed)
- ¼ cup white wine
- 15-20 medium shrimp (peeled & deveined)
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp lemon zest
- 1 tsp fresh chives (chopped)
Add 2 tbsp Melt to a small saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, add the crushed garlic cloves.Sauté 1-2 minutes, then add the white wine. Reduce for 5-6 minutes, then add 4 tbsp Melt, whisking all of the ingredients together.
Cook 2-3 minutes, then turn the heat off, cover the saucepan and set aside.
Add the remaining 2 tbsp Melt to a large skillet. Once the buttery spread is melted, add the shrimp. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
Cook 3-4 minutes, flipping the shrimp half way through.
Add the lemon juice, then add the garlic butter sauce.
Sauté 1-2 minutes, remove from the heat and top with the lemon zest and chives.
I served the shrimp & sauce over cooked bucatini pasta.
The shrimp can be served a la carte, or over your favorite pasta!
