Sautéed Shrimp:

  • Thoroughly clean, devein and drain the shrimp. 

  • Once fully drained season the shrimp with garlic salt, thyme, cayenne pepper, coriander, sage, and black pepper.

  • Drizzle olive oil over the shrimp and mix well.

  • Pre-heat a large skillet. Place seasoned shrimp in the hot pan (use medium heat) and allow cooking for 3 to 5 minutes. Be careful not to overcook or undercook the shrimp.

 

Tangy Lemon Sauce:

  • In a small pot melt 2 tablespoons of butter. 

  • Mince 4 cloves of garlic and add to the melted butter.

  • Add the rosemary, garlic salt, basil, and oregano. 

  • Allow cooking long enough for flavours to fuse (be careful not to burn the butter). 

  • Add the lemon juice and capers, stir the ingredient well.

  • Turn down heat to low and allow for sauce to cool (do not add yoghurt to sauce while it’s hot, otherwise, the sauce will break)

  • Slowly add the Greek yoghurt and stir constantly. 

  • The next couple of steps should be based on your preference of flavour:

    • If the sauce is too tangy add a little bit of honey.

    • Control the intensity of the flavour with the yoghurt. The more yoghurt, the more sauce, however, that will make it less tangy. 

  • When done place the sauce over the shrimp, serve and enjoy!

 

Note: It is best to use ALL the sauce when it’s freshly made. If you try to save this sauce for later, when you heat it up the sauce will break.
