Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp with a Sweet Onion Salad

On the dinner agenda tonight: Hawaiian garlic shrimp with loads of butter, fresh garlic (this is becoming my new go to meal!) and a sweet onion salad to go along with it using Progressive Produce Walla Walla Sweet Onions (now in season and so so sweet).

This Hawaiian garlic shrimp is filled with flavor, LOTS of garlic, butter and works so perfectly with this crisp sweet onion salad. Full recipe? See below.

Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp with a Sweet Onion Salad

Shrimp Marinade

  • 1⁄2 T Paprika
  • 1⁄2 T Salt
  • 1⁄2 T Pepper
  • 1⁄2 T Garlic powder
  • 1⁄2 T Chili flakes
  • 1⁄2 cup flour
  • 1 lb shell on shrimp

For the Garlic Shrimp

  • 1⁄2 cup butter
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1/4th cup white wine
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped garlic
  • 1⁄2 lemon

Sweet Onion Salad

  • 2 Walla Walla Sweet Onions from Progressive Produce (finely sliced)
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1⁄2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 juice of lemons
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Get your shrimp marinade ready by mixing paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili flakes and flour in a bowl. You want this as a dry marinade. Let sit for 20-30 minute to allow the flour and spices to stick.

In the meantime, make your sweet onion salad by finely slicing your onions (a mandolin works great too) and mix with chopped parsley, cilantro, olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper.

Next, heat a skillet with a tad of butter, and drizzle of olive oil. Add 1⁄2 cup of garlic and let it brown ( but not burn ) for about 2-3 minutes. Add in your white wine and let the sauce reduce for about 10-15 minutes minutes.

Once reduced, remove your garlic sauce and start to cook your shrimp in olive oil and more butter. Once your shrimp is cooked, add back in your garlic sauce and mix all together. Plate and serve with your sweet onion salad.
