16 raw jumbo shrimp peeled & deveined
8 cloves garlic
4 small dried cayenne peppers
1/3 cup white wine
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
handful freshly chopped parsley

Peel and thinly slice 8 cloves of garlic, pat down 16 raw jumbo shrimp (peeled & deveined) with
paper towels.
Season the shrimp with sea salt & black pepper, reserve 4 small dried cayenne peppers and
measure out 1/3 cup white wine
Heat a large fry pan with a medium heat;
Add a 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, after 2 minutes season the olive oil with sea salt and add in
the sliced garlic & cayenne peppers, mix with the olive oil, after 2 minutes and the garlics are
developing a light golden fried color, add the shrimp into the pan, making sure they´re all in a
single layer
After 1 1/2 to 2 minutes flip the shrimp to cook the other side, then add in the 1/3 cup of white
wine and raise the heat to a medium-high heat
After a total cooking time of about 4 minutes on the shrimp (2 minutes per side), they should be
perfectly cooked, remove the pan from the heat, transfer everything into a serving dish
Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice and freshly chopped parsley, serve next to a crusty baguette to
mop up all the sauce, enjoy!
