poached shrimp in olive oil
Recipe type: appetizer
  • shrimp (21/25 or go big and use 16/20)
  • 1 to cloves of garlic, sliced
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon red chilli pepper flakes
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons butter
  • olive oil
  • lemon zest
  • freshly chopped Italian parsley
  1. In a frying pan, over medium heat, add enough olive oil to cover the bottom and sides (about halfway up). Add chilli flakes and butter. When butter has melted, add shrimp and garlic. You can leave the shells on or off. Allow shrimp to simmer five to ten minutes flipping over halfway through cooking time. You’ll know when the shrimp are cooked when they turn opaque and have shrunken slightly. Remove from heat top with lemon zest, parsley and serve.
  2. The Culinary Chase’s Note: Serve shrimp with fresh bread. Enjoy!
