Garlic Shrimp

My daughters love shrimp, so I’m always looking for new, easy ways to make it.  I came across a recipe on for a simple garlic shrimp dish that was a huge hit in the Glick household.Try it for yourself and let me know if you liked it as much as we did. —Jennifer

You’ll need:
1 pound of fresh shrimp, peeled and de-veined
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
¼  tbsp red pepper flakes
1 bunch Italian parsley, chopped.
1 stick cold salted butter, cut into four pieces
4 tbsp lemon juice combined with 1 tbsp capers brine.

Coat the bottom of the pan with EVOO. Get the pan really hot.
Cook shrimp for about 2 minutes, keeping them moving and flipping. Sprinkle with salt.
Add garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook for about another minute. Don’t let the garlic brown by moving things around.
Add lemon juice/capers brine mixture, 1 piece of butter and ½ of the parsley
Once butter is melted, turn heat to low and add the rest of the butter and mix.

Serve as an appetizer over toasted French or Italian bread or as an entrée over angel hair pasta or rice. Use the liquid in the pan as a delicious sauce!
