    Aunt Cookie's Note:

    I found this one in a "Best American Recipes" cookbook...I don't know if it really was one of the best recipes published in 2001, but it's really good! I had to approximate the prep time (I never really paid attention to how long it took), so let me know if I was way off.

    1. 1
      Combine the oil and garlic in a very large skillet. Turn the heat to medium and cook until the garlic sizzles.
    2. 2
      Add the cumin and paprika. Stir, raise the heat to medium-high, then add the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are just pink (no longer!). Do not evaporate their liquid. Add parsley and serve with some good bread.

      So easy yet so good. I substituted Old Bay Seasoning for the ground cumin, but other than that made as directed. Thanks

      WOW! What a fabulous recipe! This is perfect as an appetizer or as a course during a Spanish Tapas meal. Very quick, I would say it took me 10 minutes tops to make this, and that would include peeling the shrimp (e-z peel). I used smoked Spanish paprika and no parsley, we ate it too fast! Make sure you have bread to mop up the smokey garlic oil in the bottom. Thanks Aunt Cookie - this is a KEEPER!
