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.

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.

Easy Recipes to Start off 2018!


It’s almost one month into the new year and I’m already a little bit on my lazy side. I’ve been trying to incorporate recipes that are full of flavor, easy to make and a short list of ingredients. This blog post covers all the types of those recipes; a healthy and fast salmon skillet, a little more of an unhealthy twist for fried mini shrimp po’ boys and pick-it-up fresh gnocchi. All ingredients were purchased at the new Whole Foods Market 365 in Santa Monica, CA! It felt like a party in there with all their fresh produce, packaged foods, my favorite brands (ehem harmless harvest + vital farms!) and don’t forget the mochi bar ;) Read more for the full three recipes!


  1. Boil your water with salt, when boiled, add in your gnocchi. When it floats to the top, it’s ready.

  2. In a skillet, heat the plum sauce for a few minutes and add in your finished gnocchi and a little dash of pasta pasta. Top with basil and enjoy!
