1/2tspred pepper flakes(optional if you like a little spice)

Heat a large pan over medium heat.
Once the pan is hot, add in 1 tbsp. of the butter to melt. Once the butter has melted add in the shallot to cook, stirring occasionally. Cook until the shallot softens and becomes translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent burning.
Add in the garlic, cook for about two minutes. Stir frequently to prevent burning.
Next, add in the remaining butter, lemon juice, chicken stock and red pepper flakes, if using. Season with salt and pepper.
Stirring frequently, simmer the sauce for 3-4 minutes until it cooks down a little.
Add in the shrimp to warm up for a couple of minutes. If using fresh shrimp, cook until the shrimp just turns pink throughout, about 5 minutes total (flipping halfway).
Serve the garlic butter shrimp with a few spoonfuls of sauce.
