Easy Delicious Garlic Shrimp

READY IN: 19mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This take a matter of minutes to to prepare and cook. If you love garlic you will love this recipe, of coarse you may adjust the garlic to taste. I like to add in a small amount of dry white wine to the shrimp just before it is finished cooking. Serve this with crusty bread or hot cooked pasta. This recipe will serve 3 people easily, you might want to double all ingredients including the shrimp to serve more than 3-4 people.
