Shrimp Tapas

This has got to be one of my all-time favorite quick meals! It's another one of Ann's (Thibeault's Table) recipes... what can I say? The girl's got a ton of great recipes! ;-) It's easy and unbelievably delicious. And takes no time at all. Make sure you have chunks of good bread to sop up the broth. Pour yourself a glass of white wine and you'll have heaven at your fingertips!

Spanish Tapa - Garlic Shrimp

6 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 pound medium or large shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons chicken broth
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons minced parsley
Italian or French Bread cut into cubes

Heat the oil, garlic and red pepper flakes in a large, shallow pan. When the garlic just begins to turn golden, add the shrimp and cook over high heat for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the broth and lemon juice.

Pour into a large earthenware bowl and sprinkle with salt and parsley. Serve immediately.

Goes great with a nice dry white wine, dry sherry, or Martini

It may be 10 a.m. here, but I'm already craving garlicky shrimp.

Lori, I wish I could just reach in a dip a piece of bread in that wonderful garlicky sauce. I'm holding off making these until spotted prawn season opens. Can't wait.
