Shrimp wtih garlic

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon Coarse sea salt
¾ pounds Medium shrimp (about 20); shelled & deveined
½ cup Extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Plus 1 tsp minced garlic
¼ teaspoon Crushed hot red pepper
1 teaspoon Dry sherry vinegar or white wine vinegar
¼ cup Finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

(food & wine 1993)

(Soaking the shrimp in salt water gives them a fresh, briny flavor. Serve with LOTS of crusty bread. My note: I'd probably skip that step, but will include it anyway...and I've had this in spanish restaurants...it is wonderful!)

In a medium bowl, stir the salt into 1 cup of water until dissolved. Add the shrimp and let soak for 5 minutes. Drain and pat dry.

In a heavy medium skillet, heat the oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, about 4 minutes. Add the shrimp in 1 layer and sprinkle the garlic & red pepper on top. Cook the shrimp, turning once, until opaque, about 1 minute per side. Do not overcook. Stir in the vinegar and parsley and serve.
