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!
