Both simple to make and loaded with flavor, these Garlic Shrimp have a balanced depth to them thanks to a lightly spiced olive oil sauce.
- 8 ounces extra virgin olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, sliced thin
- Salt to taste
- 4 tablespoons oil from cooking Garlic Chips
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- ½ teaspoon chili flakes
- 1 pound 16/20 shrimp, peeled and deviened
- 2 ounces dry sherry
- 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
- 1 lemon, cut into supremes
- 1 baguette, sliced and toasted
To make Garlic Chips, add oil to a small sauce pot followed by sliced garlic. Stir gently to break up any pieces stuck together. Place pot over medium heat and stir gently as the oil heats and the garlic begins to fry.
As soon as the garlic starts to turn golden brown, remove from heat and continue to stir until it is medium brown. Immediately remove garlic from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel. Lightly season with salt and reserve.
Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. Add 4 tablespoons of the oil used for making the Garlic Chips. Then add the chopped garlic and chili flakes and sauté until garlic is golden brown.
Add the shrimp and sauté for 2-3 minutes or until they begin to turn opaque. Deglaze the pan with sherry and cook for 30 seconds. Add chopped parsley and lemon supremes and toss with the shrimp.
Serve immediately with toasted baguette, remaining garlic oil and garlic chips.
