1/2 lb large shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails and heads off
Clean Shrimp: Clean and devein the shrimp first; this step takes longer than you might think. There’s a great video on the topic by epicurious. Cut the cleaned shrimp in half.
Sauté the shrimp with some minced garlic in a little olive oil over medium high heat. Sauté, stirring constantly, until the shrimp are cooked. This only takes a few minutes. They should curl and get pink. Remove from heat.
Serve immediately or chill first.
