Sizzling Shrimp

Sizzling Shrimp

This recipe is so easy to make that you can’t believe the results can be so delicious. It is a perfect dish to prep ahead. All the ingredients can be combined in a bowl and put into the refrigerator until just ready to cook. The final cooking should take just a few minutes. An easy recipe to double for a crowd.

Serves 6 as an appetizer
Level of Difficulty: easy

Ingredients:
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Use a bit more oil if you are going to toss on pasta.
4 cloves finely minced garlic
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 lemon
1 lb shrimp – at least, large in size
Several grinds of fresh pepper and salt

Instructions:
Grate half the lemon and then juice it. Place in a medium non-reactive bowl (glass or stainless are excellent). Add all the other ingredients and stir so that the shrimp are covered by the oil and lemon mixture. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. When a drop of water sprinkled in the pan sizzles, add all the shrimp at once. Using tongs turn the shrimp after they turn pink on the first side. Depending on the size of your shrimp this will take between 2-3 minutes. Cook just until pink on the second side. Place in a bowl and serve immediately with bread. The dish is also tossed with some linguine.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
