In Spanish tavernas, these shrimp; fragrant with garlic and olive oil; are brought to the table sizzling in a little metal pan. Have plenty of bread on hand to sop up the delicious pan juices. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 4 large cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons dry sherry
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- Chopped fresh flat-leaf (Italian) parsley for garnish
In a sauté pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, and sauté for 1 minute. Raise the heat to high and add the shrimp, lemon juice, sherry and paprika. Stir well, then sauté, stirring briskly, until the shrimp turn pink and curl slightly, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and sprinkle with parsley. Serve hot.
