Preheat a non-stick or other heavy skillet over medium-high heat with 1 Tablespoon olive oil and 1 Tbsp. butter until hot, but not smoking.

1. Into hot skillet carefully pour olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and shrimp. Cook, stirring contents often, until shrimp are pink and opaque about 5-10 minutes, being careful not to over-cook. Remove shrimp from pan and set aside.
