You will need a small cast iron pan like I used or a small cast iron frying pan. It needs to be small as you want the shrimp to be nicely crowded in the pan as you will see it is important to the cooking process.
Now preheat your oven to 500 degrees and in the pan add about 1/2 inch of olive oil (I know it seems a lot but it will make great dipping sauce) now into the 500 degree oven for about 10-12 min or until the oil is starting to smoke.
It is VERY IMPORTANT to put the pan on a baking sheet or sizzle plate as you need this to make it safe and stable when removing from the oven as that oil will be searingly hot and remember never to touch the pan and use thick oven mitt when removing from the oven.
Now work quickly and carefully place the shrimp into the oil, (it will start to fry aggressively) followed by the garlic, chilies and salt. Using tongs turn the shrimp around a few times until you see all sides of the shrimp are pink this will happen quick. Now add the knob of butter and give the shrimp another turn in the pan. Add a squeeze of lemon and a little parsley and you are DONE!
Enjoy with some crusty bread to soak up all that great garlic oil and butter while enjoying this moist and delicious shrimp.
