Start this delicious gluten free recipe by adding butter and olive oil to a large skillet. Melt the butter with the oil over medium heat. Once melted add in the shrimp and lemon juice. Now for this part you can add fresh squeezed lemon juice or to save time you can add lemon juice from a bottle, like I did. Add black pepper if desired to the shrimp, then place the lid on.

Let the shrimp sauteed for 5-6 minutes before turning over. Once turned over add more black pepper if you want. Place lid on and let sauteed for another 5-6 minutes. Now the shrimp is done ready to serve. You can serve alone or use the drippings on the pan and pour over the shrimp for added flavor.

I serve Baked Potatoes and Sauteed Zucchini and Squash with our Easy Lemon Shrimp; it was a great refreshing dinner on a summer night. This is a delicious easy low carb dish if you are following the Keto Diet.
