Easy Garlic shrimp

Seafood is one of those things that you either love or hate , I am definitely on team seafood. Some health professionals recommend eating 2 portions of seafood each week e.g salmon and shrimp because they are a good source of protein and minerals. As we all know white meat is better that red meat health wise, so if you are not a big fan of seafood you can start with shrimp as it is easy to cook. My darling boyfriend is a seafood lover and there is one dish that he loves ‘Garlic Shrimp’  He has asked me to make it so many times that I could make it with my eyes closed. I decided to share this easy recipe with you and I can assure you it is very tasty too!

1/2 pound shrimp
2 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 lemon juiced
2 tsp fresh parsley finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp olive oil


  •  Mix lemon juice, garlic,  red pepper flakes , 1 tbsp olive oil, shrimp ,salt and pepper in a medium size bowl.
  • Meanwhile heat the rest of the olive oil in a griddle pan.
  • Place shrimp in pan , make sure they are not too close together to prevent them from steaming.
  • Cook for about 3 minutes each side
  •  Once shrimp is cooked on both sides serve immediately . I served mine with mushroom risotto and steamed broccoli. Yummy!
