Shrimp with Green Garlic Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lorac

A beautiful and luscious dish. Bright pink shrimp with a pale green sauce. Make sure you have plenty of bread to soak up any remaining sauce. Nothing this good should be so easy!

I have made this dish twice, once using shrimp and the other with backfin crabmeat. Both times I roasted the garlic in olive oil before chopping it, which I think added just a little oomph to the flavour. I put the salt to a much better use and threw it over my shoulder for good luck. When I made it with crab, I cut back just a wee smidgen on the spices just so I wouldn’t risk overpowering the crab – don’t know if that was necessary, but it tasted great, so what the heck! It was a great mélange of flavours without any one ingredient tasting overly prominent. When I made it with shrimp, I made crispy garlic bread with the French loaf. The only thing I think I might do differently next time is to use dry sherry instead of sweet.
