garlicy shrimp in 4 minutes.

simple, simple, quick dinner.  you could serve this over pasta.   or as an appetizer (as i did)  served with toasted garlic bread.  just divine.


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed away from skin
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 24 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails in tact, ask for easy peels at your fish counter
  • 2 teaspoons grill or steak seasoning blend (recommended: montreal seasoning by mccormick) or coarse salt and pepper
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves, a handful


heat a large skillet over medium high heat. add extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan, garlic, red pepper flakes and shrimp. season with grill seasoning or salt and pepper and cook shrimp 3 minutes or until just pink. toss with lemon zest, juice and chopped parsley. remove shrimp to a serving platter leaving the garlic cloves in the pan.
i kept all of the garlic cloves in it.
