Quick Shrimp


Prep and Cook Time: 15 minutes



1 lb large shrimp

3 TBS fresh lemon juice

2 TBS extra virgin olive oil

4 medium cloves garlic, pressed

3 TBS fresh chopped parsley

1 large firm ripe tomato, chopped, seeds and excess pulp removed

salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste

pinch red pepper flakes


Press garlic.

Use a 3 quart saucepan filled halfway with water. Add salt to taste and 3 TBS of lemon juice and bring to a boil.

While water is coming to a boil, peel shrimp. Make a slight slit down the back of each shrimp and rinse out black vein. Add to boiling water and cook just until they are pink, about 1-2 minutes.

Dry shrimp with paper towels to remove excess water. If not, it will dilute the flavor. Make sure shrimp is well dried. Toss with rest of ingredients. If you can let them marinate in refrigerator for an hour they will be more flavorful.
