Ingredients

¼ c. extra virgin olive oil
4 medium garlic cloves, minced
2 lbs large shrimp, peeled, deveined, and rinsed
¼ c. minced fresh parsley leaves
2 T. juice from 1 lemon
Salt
Cayenne pepper (optional)


Heat oil and garlic in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until garlic begins to sizzle. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until fragrant and pale gold, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp, increase heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp turn pink, about 7 minutes. Be careful not to overcook or the shrimp will become tough. Off heat, stir in parsley, lemon juice, and salt and cayenne pepper to taste. Serve immediately.


Serving suggestions – serve with rice, pasta, or bread (it’s great with a crusty bread to soak up the juices off the plate).
