Garlic Shrimp (It’s all about the garlic)

I’ve made no secret about our adulation of garlic. We’re absolutely mad about garlic; it’s a pantry staple that every home cook must always have on hand.

It’s a devotion well deserved. After all, garlic not only makes everything supremely delicious, but it’s also a nutritional powerhouse, packed with antioxidants, and has healing properties.

Plus, all the garlic has like zero calories, and it’s ridiculously simple to add to almost any dish.

What other food boasts all that jazz and more?

Sure, you might have garlic breath after all that there, but if everyone eats the same dish, then nobody smells a thing.

It’s called a team effort. Garlic conspiracy.

Plus, I’m mature (aka old) enough not to care about teensy things like garlic breath anymore.

And this succulent, juicy, sweet and savory shrimp…all in 10 minutes (or less if you peel garlic like this.)

Yield: 4

Ingredients

Scale

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
