Spanish-Style Garlic Shrimp
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a garlic shrimp recipe that would make six good-size appetizer portions of wonderfully sweet and tender shrimp, infused with deep garlic flavor and not drenched in oil. First, we chose a large pan, to accommodate the shrimp in one layer in a reduced amount of oil. Then, to get good garlic flavor in our shrimp recipe, we added garlic in three ways: as minced cloves in a marinade, as smashed whole cloves browned in and removed from the oil before the shrimp were added, and as slices added to the oil before the shrimp were added.
