Garlic Shrimp With Slight Kick and Crusty Bread

Recipe Swap

A take on Food & Wine’s recipe.

Serves: 4


  • 1-1/2 pounds shelled and deveined shrimp
  • Kosher salt
  • ¼ cup thin-sliced garlic (add more if you love garlic)
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup minced parsley
  • 2 tablespoons sherry
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • Crusty Bread


In a large bowl, toss the shrimp with one teaspoon of salt and let stand for 10 minutes.

In a 9” skillet (cast iron is best), combine the garlic, olive oil and butter and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until garlic is very fragrant and just starts to brown, about 8-10 minutes. 

Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until barely pink, about five minutes. Stir in the parsley, sherry, lemon zest and a generous pinch of salt. Remove from the heat and let stand three to five minutes. Serve in the skillet. Dunk the crusty bread and enjoy!
