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. Combine the oil and garlic in a very large skillet. Turn the heat to medium and cook until the garlic sizzles.
  2. Add the cumin and paprika. Stir, raise the heat to medium-high, then add the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper.
  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.
