1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3-4 big garlic cloves, peeled and cut into thin slivers
2 pounds shrimp
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Combine the oil and garlic in a skillet. Cook on medium heat until the garlic begins to sizzle. Stir, raise the heat to medium-high and add the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are all pink (about 3-4 minutes), being careful not to overcook them. Do not evaporate their liquid. Turn off the heat and serve with hot, crusty bread for mopping up the sauce. Mmmm, mmmm, good!

Sweetnicks’ Note: You can also serve this over angel hair pasta for a quick Shrimp Scampi Pasta dish.
