Zesty Shrimp Sauté

1 tsp granulated garlic
½ tsp red pepper flakes
¼ tsp ground black pepper
¼ tsp kosher salt
1 tsp unsalted butter
16 large shrimp (~1 lb)
2 tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp lemon zest

Preheat a nonstick sauté pan over medium heat for 1 minute. Add garlic, red pepper flakes, pepper and salt. Toast for 30 seconds. Increase heat to medium-high, add butter and allow to melt completely. Add shrimp and cook 1 minute on each side until flesh is opaque. Turn off heat. Add lemon juice and zest. Swirl the pan until shrimp are evenly coated with sauce. Serve immediately or refrigerate for at least 2 hrs and serve chilled.
