Based on a popular Spanish tapa, or appetizer, this dish is delicious enough to serve as a main course. You just saute the shrimp in garlicky, spicy olive oil and then toss them with sherry, lemon juice, and a handful of parsley. The shrimp will be equally good hot or at room temperature.
1/3 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, cut into thin slices
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
2 pounds large shrimp, shelled
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
3 tablespoons dry sherry
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Shrimp in Garlic Sauce Recipe at
In a large frying pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Add the garlic, bay leaf, and red-pepper flakes and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the shrimp, salt, and black pepper to the pan and stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are just done, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the sherry, lemon juice, and parsley.

FISH ALTERNATIVES: Squid would be delicious with the garlic sauce. Cook it quickly (for about two minutes), or it will become tough and rubbery. Sea scallops are another alternative; cook them for about two minutes per side, without stirring, so they brown nicely.

NOTES: Dark shrimp veins are usually removed for aesthetic purposes. We find that it's not essential to take them out, especially if you're pressed for time.

Easy and delicious. The pepper flakes add a zest that isn't found in other recipes.
