Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 dried red chiles, broken
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pound rock shrimp
  • Kosher salt
Directions
  • Special equipment: 2 (4-inch) flameproof ramekins such as terra cotta cazuelas

  • *This makes a really small amount of shrimp. This recipe can be done in batches or a larger amount can be done in a saute pan.

  • Add the garlic and chile to the ramekins and cover with oil to about 1/4-inch deep. Bring the ramekins to a high heat. (This can be done on the grill.) Season the shrimp with salt.

  • When the garlic starts to sizzle and is very aromatic, add the shrimp. Cook until the shrimp turn pink, about 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle in a couple drops of water before serving to get the oil to really sizzle. Serve with bread to sop up the delicious olive oil!

  • Sooooooo yummy!
