Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp

Juicy prawns cooked in a garlicky buttery sauce, this Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp is similar to the shrimp vans you’d find in Hawaii.

I regularly wonder if I should journey anywhere in the world for one meal; where might i'm going? this is a tough desire for me; I’d have to admit. I’d have to say perhaps Nigeria to seize some sparkling street suya, or Vietnam for a large bowl of Pho, or Hawaii for a plate of Hawaiian garlic shrimp!


I used to be fortunate sufficient to visit Hawaii ultimate month (appearance out for my journey posts coming quickly), and the only component I’ve been unable to overlook is this Hawaiian garlic shrimp. Shrimp vehicles are very popular in Hawaii, and i were given to attempt certainly one of their most famous ones Giovanni’s shrimp truck. 

I had heard such a lot of true things approximately it, and it simply did not disappoint!! taste bomb from the juicy shrimp to the macaroni salad I selected to pair with; the wheels in my head immediately started turning looking to determine out how I ought to make these shrimps back home!



  • 2½ tablespoons of all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 18 large garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • Fresh chopped parsley (optional for garnish)
  • 1 pounds of jumbo shrimp with shell on (cleaned and deveined)


  1. Place the flour, paprika, salt, and black pepper in a large resealable bag.
  2. Add the shrimp to the bag and coat the shrimp with the flour mixture. Make sure all the shrimp is coated evenly. Set the shrimp aside.
  3. 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!

  5. Add the second tablespoon of olive oil to the pan. Once heated, add your shrimp to the pan.
  6. 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.
