  1. Heat a large, nonstick skillet with first portion of butter over medium-low heat. When butter melts, add buns and heat until lightly browned and toasted on all sides. Set aside and wipe out the pan.

  2. Return skillet to heat. Add water and second portion of butter. When butter melts, add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add shrimp to the pan and cook gently for 3 to 4 minutes until opaque and cooked through, turning shrimp occasionally to baste both sides with butter. Sprinkle lemon juice over shrimp and toss with parsley.
