Shrimp with Lemon-Mint Sauce

¼ cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
12 ounces to 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled
3 teaspoons salted butter
3 teaspoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
zest of one lemon
juice of one lemon
¼ cup chicken stock or broth
2 tablespoons torn mint leaves
steamed rice for serving, if desired

1. Place the flour, salt and pepper in a zipper top bag. Seal and shake to mix well. Add the shrimp and shake to coat well.

2. Heat the butter and oil together in a large skillet over medium high heat. Just as the butter stops bubbling, lift the coated shrimp into the pan. Discard remaining flour mixture. Separate and arrange the shrimp in a single layer. Cook for about 1 ½ minutes or until shrimp starts to turn pink and slightly brown on first side. Cook the shrimp, shaking and turning for about 2 more minutes or until cooked through and crispy on the edges. Remove from the skillet and cover lightly with foil to keep warm.

3. Add garlic, lemon juice and zest to the hot skillet. Stir and cook for 1 minute over medium heat. Add the chicken stock and scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen pan drippings. Add mint and stir and cook 30 seconds. Remove from heat.

4. To serve, place the shrimp over rice, if desired, and drizzle with pan sauce.
