Looking for something quick and delicious to serve while entertaining? This garlic shrimp dish is for you! The shrimp takes in all the wonderful flavours of the garlic and has a bit of zip with the added chilli flakes. Not only is this a stellar appetizer, but it can be served with rice or salad as a meal.

Garlic Shrimp Tips:
- When it comes to the shrimp, what does a “16/20 count” mean? It means there are 16 to 20 shrimps per pound.
- Thaw frozen shrimp in a bowl in the fridge overnight. If you’re in a hurry, place shrimp in a colander under cold running water until thawed.
- Shrimp cooks VERY quickly. Keep a watchful eye on the shrimp and be sure to have everything you need ready before you cook the shrimp.
- Shrimp is cooked when it goes from translucent to opaque and pink. Take the shrimp off the heat a few seconds before you think they are done so they don’t over cook. As they’re taken off the heat and are resting, they’ll continue to cook.
