This simple yet flavorful dish is usually served as a tapa (appetizer) in Spain, but also makes a wonderful main dish. Serve with crusty bread to soak up all the garlicky oil.
6 tbsp olive oil
1 lb peeled raw shrimp
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Red pepper flakes, or fresh red chilies, diced
Salt, to taste
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over high heat until shimmering. Add the garlic, pepper flakes or diced chilies, cook for 10 seconds. Add the shrimp and fry , stirring constantly, until shrimp turns pink. Season with salt and serve immediately.
