Sautéed shrimp
24 raw shrimp completely peeled and deviened (31-40 count is what I use for this recipe)
10 cloves garlic chopped into small chunks (a pretty good pile of it)
1 TBSP or so chopped fresh parsley
3 pinches crushed red pepper (to taste)
Enough extra virgin olive oil to cook your shrimp in, a cup or so
sea salt to taste, optional
1 loaf fresh French bread sliced into 1/2 inch pieces lightly buttered, optional (or your favorite roll or bread)
Total cooking time about 6-7 minutes

In a large pan heat the olive oil on medium heat.
When hot add the shrimp, they should start a mild sizzle. Maintain that sizzle through out cooking.
After a minute or two turn the shrimp, spread the garlic around the pan.
Turn the shrimp after another minute or two and sprinkle the parsley & red pepper over the shrimp. Add some salt, optional.
Then toss/stir it all around for a few minutes more until the shrimp is done and garlic is nicely sizzling but not really browned and remove from the heat. Quickly salt to taste.
Remove all the shrimp to your plate leaving most of the garlic pieces in the oil.
Take the pieces of bread and spoon on some of the oil with the garlic-parsley-red peppers in it onto the bread.
Makes a nice appetizer or meal with a side dish of your favorite pasta or rice dish.

Yes, it is killer. I'd even say it has a refreshing taste. I back engineered it from a restaurant I went to in downtown GR. I nailed it just the way it was served to me.
Must be raw shrimp, not the boiled stuff. One of our staples for many years now. Glad you enjoyed it!

I eat alot of shrimp in my diet, and I always buy cooked and deviened because I don't like the whole process of deviening myself. Even when I see raw cheaper than cooked and deviened, I still go for the already done.
Thanks for the recipe. This might give me a reason to use raw again.
By the way, I'm always looking for recipes for shrimp, so if anyone has anymore shrimp recipes, I'd appreciate it.

Cen-sea has raw deviened shrimp, probably some others do as well.
I only buy raw deviened myself. This recipe shouldn't be tried with boiled shrimp, promise me!

I agree with Koby, I stopped buying precooked shrimp several years ago. As far a deviening, I consider it optional. Kind of like the mushroom/bug topic.

Yeah...I gotta have it deviened, even if I do it myself. Just like my mushrooms and garden vegetables....need to be bug-free. Kinda funny about my protein intake that way:grin: Eating gritty shrimp might turn me off on it altogether.
I do prefer fresh and raw shrimp. It just makes for quick and easy cooking already done, but does lack the better taste, I agree.
Will definitely try this one tho, as recommended, with raw.
