Best Garlic Shrimp Recipe …quick and easy By Chef Buck

 This is a super-quick and delicious garlic shrimp recipe. Lots of olive oil and garlic add great flavor, especially when served with fresh sliced bread. Cook the shrimp quickly in a hot skillet, but don’t overcook! Overcooked shrimp can get rubbery, so the total cooking time for this dish is about 4 minutes tops.   

Ingredients:

2 lbs SHRIMP

½ cup OLIVE OIL

½ cup GARLIC …or as much as you like (finely chopped)

1 tsp RED PEPPER FLAKES

2 tsp PAPRIKA

SALT and PEPPER to taste

3-5 Tbsp LEMON JUICE

½ cup PARSLEY (chopped)

sliced BREAD for sure, dude

Directions:

🦐🦐 Peel and devein the shrimp (save the shells and heads to make a stock!)

🦐🦐 Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium high heat.

🦐🦐 When oil is hot, add red pepper flakes. Red pepper flakes add a nice heat, but substitute fresh peppers, or even a little cayenne if you like.

🦐🦐 Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Use as much garlic as you like. I prefer lots of garlic. I literally used an entire bulb. It seems like a lot, but the oil and garlic taste great with thick slices of fresh bread.

🦐🦐 Add the shrimp, and continue sauteing on medium high heat.

🦐🦐 The shrimp only take about 3 minutes to cook. Don’t overcook the shrimp; they will become rubbery if cooked overly long.

🦐🦐 Add paprika, and salt and pepper to taste.

🦐🦐 Saute shrimp until JUST cooked, when shrimp begin to color and curl, then remove the skillet from the heat.

🦐🦐 Add lemon juice and fresh chopped parsley.

🦐🦐 Mix well and serve in a bowl with thick slices of fresh bread.
