Garlicky Shrimp Tapas

Garlicky Shrimp Tapas


  • 1/2 lb. uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 small bay leaf
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley


Heat oil in skillet. Add the minced garlic, bay leaf and red pepper flakes and stir one minute or until fragrant and garlic is slightly softened. Add shrimp and stir until just cooked through, about 3 minutes--be careful not to overcook! You just want the shrimp opaque and still crunchy/tender. Sprinkle with parsley and salt and pepper to taste. You can also use pre-cooked, shelled and de-veined shrimp, but cook garlic slightly longer and toss shrimp only enough to heat through.
