Seared Spicy Garlic Shrimp Appetizer

0 1841
I love fast recipes, and this is one of my favorite quickies. All you need is shrimp, olive oil, garlic, white wine, red pepper flakes, and a loaf of French or Italian bread for dipping. Serve the shrimp on a platter and pour the garlic infused olive oil over the shrimp. Serve with hot crusty bread and a glass of champagne or white wine and listen to the silence as people dig in… it always happens : )    
You can also serve this dish over spaghetti or a bowl of orzo for a more robust meal.
