Garlic Butter Seared Shrimp & How to Boss-up in the Kitchen

9:50 PM

I see you. You're alot like me. You have some pans stashed in the kitchen, but you have one favorite that you use for everything. It used to be non-stick, but the stuff wore off in the middle. You need a new pan, but you just don't have time to sift through and find a good one.

That's where I come in. I used to be in your shoes. I've gone through tons of pans, cheap ones, ones I invested in, others I found were destroyed by roommates years ago.. I'd have to buy a new one every few years.

What if I told you that you could use one pan.. or maybe a couple of the same line, and you'd have pans that help you cook better, faster and would last you a lifetime?  I'm not talking your run-of-the-mill nonstick pan - I'm talking stainless steel babe. Made In is going to rock your world.. or at least your kitchen!

I'm so excited to have teamed up with Made In, who is bringing pots & pans direct to consumer  - which means there's no middle-man markup, and the best part is they are actually affordable - making it perfect for students, newly weds, or anyone who's looking to upgrade their current collection. 

Without a middle man, there's no markup - they are even made in the United States, with premium pans starting at only $69 - fry pans, sauce pans, pots and more. Your jaw just dropped if you've been shopping around for pans. 

If you've never tried stainless, let's get you up to speed. The 5-ply construction means even heat distribution and even cooking - no more half-done chicken and restaurant-style salmon! My favorite part is the chemical-free coating - as typical non-stick pans break down, that residue ends up on the food your eating. You don't even have to worry about a hot handle with these - the handle is built to be heat resistant - which is important for me and my accident-prone nature. 

As you're shopping their site, you can choose just one pan, you aren't locked into a set with 5 pans you'll never use and 8 lids you have to store somewhere. You can also utilize the "Build Your Kitchen" feature to narrow down the pans you will use. On top of it all - they'll teach you how to cook with & use your pan, and even care for it with their stainless cleaner -  if you're new to stainless cooking - it's way better, trust me. 

We cook at home everyday. We meal prep every Sunday. It is so important to have quality & durable gear. Having the right tools to do the job can make all the difference. If you're not stressing about what to pick up for dinner, you can just cook something at home as a healthier and time-saving alternative. Get your kids in the kitchen with you, those are memories they'll always be able to look back on. Gift yourself.. and your family, a nice pan for Christmas - just do it. 

I've put this fry pan to the test numerous times now and it just blows me away every. single. time.  Today for example, my shrimp where perfectly pan-seared in no time at all. I added some veggies I had in the fridge for a quick & filling low-carb/high protein lunch.

Garlic Butter Pan-Seared Shrimp


2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 1⁄2 lbs shrimp, (peeled and deveined)
1⁄4 teaspoon table salt
1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1⁄8 teaspoon granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


1.  Toss in your shrimp, salt, pepper, and sugar in medium bowl, then heat your pan to medium-high. 

2.  Add your oil, swirl to coat the pan then add half of shrimp to pan in single layer and cook until spotty brown and edges turn pink, about 1-2 minutes. Using tongs, flip each shrimp and let cook until cooked through, 1-2 minutes more. Transfer shrimp to a plate. Repeat with remaining tablespoon oil and shrimp. 

3. After second batch has been removed from the heat, add the butter to the still warm pan, let melt. Add the garlic and lemon juice. Add the shrimp to the butter mixture, stir to combine and then transfer to a bowl & serve.

...see what I did there? Aria's been on a Rapunzel kick lately. :)
