- Place the flour, paprika, salt, and black pepper in a large resealable bag.
- Add the shrimp to the bag and coat the shrimp with the flour mixture. Make sure all the shrimp are coated evenly. Set the shrimp aside.
- Melt the butter and one tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat in a large pan. Once the butter has melted, add the chopped garlic to the melted butter & oil, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until you see the garlic has turned light brown. TAKE CARE TO NOT BURN THE GARLIC!
- Remove the garlic sauce from the pan and set aside.
- Add the second tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Once heated, add your shrimp to the pan.
- Cook the shrimp over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. You may need to cook the shrimp in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
- Once you have cooked the last batch of shrimp, add all the shrimp back to the pan and pour over the garlic sauce. Stir to combine and garnish with parsley.
- Serve Hawaiian Style with sticky white rice and macaroni salad!
