Sizzled Citrus Shrimp

  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 40m

4 servings, about 3/4 cup each

This quick Spanish-inspired sauté is a lesson in simplicity. All shrimp really needs to dazzle is lots of garlic and a splash of lemon. Serve as a main dish or as a tapa (appetizer).

ingredients

  • For Marinade and Shrimp:
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound medium shrimp (30 to 40 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

directions

Combine lemon juice, wine, 2 teaspoons of oil and the garlic in a medium bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, tossing occasionally. Drain well, reserving marinade.

Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook, turning once, until barely pink, about 30 seconds per side; transfer to a plate. Add bay leaf, crushed red pepper and the reserved marinade to the pan; simmer for 4 minutes. Return the shrimp and any accumulated juices to the pan; heat through. Season with salt, sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
