Garlic Shrimp Recipe Ingredients:
2 lbs SHRIMP
½ cup GARLIC …or as much as you like (finely chopped)
SALT and PEPPER to taste
½ cup PARSLEY (chopped)
sliced BREAD for sure, dude

Garlic Shrimp Recipe 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 are gonna taste great when paired with thick slices of fresh bread.
Add the shrimp, and continue sauteing on medium high heat.
Once the shrimp hits the pan, it’ll 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.

Matt Johnson says:

@Chef Buck Awesome dish man. I made this for my wife last night. We loved it. As I sat there dipping my bread in that killer sauce I kept thinking of all the various things that can be done with this recipe. Next time I make this I’m gonna add some broccoli and pour it all over a bowl of white rice (instead of using the bread). American style shrimp and broccoli, oh yeah. Thanks dude. Liked and subscribed.

Shrimps are the scavengers of the oceans that means they clean the ocean witch eating shrimps

Tony A says:

Pretty much cook your shrimp the same way I cook mine.  Word of advice for the audience, vary the spicing to your whims, serve with/over rice or pasta, add some broccoli or cauliflower.  One of the most versatile meals, ever, and fast…
