Shrimp With Olive Oil and Garlic

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by EastCoastKate

For garlic lovers! This recipe comes from a cookbook from a Restaurant Management course I took in university. I've been making it on a regular basis ever since. I usually serve this over a bed of rice, or on those lazy nights I skip the rice and soak up the sauce with slices of bread

Made for Fall PAC 2012 and so glad I did. This is such an easy dish to prepare when you are running short on time or even for company. Made as posted except for adding some red pepper flakes for some zing and served this over noodles and with a green salad.
