  3. Meanwhile, In a large (12-14 inch) heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat, add 4 Tbsp butter and 3 Tbsp olive oil. Once butter is sizzling, add 4 pressed garlic cloves an stir 1 minute. Add shrimp in a single layer and sprinkle with 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Saute shrimp 1-2 minutes per side, just until pink and not translucent.
