Garlic Shrimp
    Serves 4
    If you like garlic and shrimp, you'll love this dish. Serve the shrimp with rice or pasta, with plenty of crusty bread for sopping up the sauce.
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  sea salt or kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 garlic cloves, peeled and coarsely chopped or thinly sliced
1 dried red chile, seeded and crumbled
3 tablespoons minced parsley

1. Sprinkle the shrimp with salt, toss and let sit for 15 minutes.

2. Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat and add the garlic and chile. Cook, stirring, until the garlic begins to color, about 1 minute. Turn the heat up to medium-high and add the shrimp. Cook, stirring, until the shrimp turns pink and is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, sprinkle with the parsley, and serve, with rice or pasta and crusty bread.


Advance preparation: You can clean the shrimp and salt it hours ahead of making the dish. Keep in a covered dish in the refrigerator.
