Spicy Garlic Shrimp

4 27

Who can resist hot and spicy? This is a guaranteed hit and very easy to prepare. You can serve this as an appetizer with French bread to soak up the garlic flavored olive oil, or you can toss in some of your favorite cooked pasta and serve as a main coarse.


Spicy Garlic Shrimp

1 lb of medium size shrimp, peel and devein (I leave the tails on, but that’s up to you)
1/2 cup of olive oil
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 medium cloves of crushed garlic
A dash or two of sea salt

To infuse the flavor of garlic and pepper, pour 1/2 cup of olive oil
in a large skillet, add pepper flakes and crushed garlic and let stand
for 1/2 hour. When you are ready to cook, turn up the heat high to get
the oil nice and hot. Turn heat down to med-high and add 1/2 of the
shrimp. Cook shrimp until they turn pink on edges (about 2 minutes per
side), turn each shrimp and cook until the entire shrimp is pink (2
minutes). Remove immediately, do not overcook. Place shrimp in a plate
and cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining shrimp (there should be
plenty of oil left). Place shrimp on a serving dish, pouring some of
the oil over the shrimp. Serve with crusty french bread to soak
up the flavored spicy olive oil.

    Hi Terry,
    This sounds like a great recipe which I could try-out back in my kitchen. Seafood is what I love best, thanks for the tip.
