Summer arrived officially. Along with the swimming and diving this means to me a lot of seafood on the table. Shrimps are common guests home, but this is one of my favorite recipes - the taste of fried garlic and hot pepper makes me feel like I am on the Mediterranean coast.
I love to visist the fish markets abroad- I love the smell of the fresh caught fish, the colors and shapes of the different species, all the inviting voices of the vendors. And when they allow me to make a picture of them, I am even happier.
- 500 g shrimps
- 3 Tbsp light olive oil
- 1/2 Tbsp hot pepper flakes
- 6 cloves of garlic, halved
- salt to taste
Heat olive oil in a pan, add garlic and let it sizzle for a minute. Add hot pepper flakes, stir well and add the shrimps. Fry shrimps until their color turns to orange (about 2-3 minutes), turning them once to fry both sides. Serve hot.
