Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:10 minutes
Total Time:15 minutes
Yield:6 servings 1x
1/3 cup olive oil
1 whole bulb of garlic, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon of smoky paprika
1 lb medium-large shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Using a large cast iron skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped garlic and sauté for 4-5 minutes until the garlic begins to turn brown being careful not to burn it. Add the paprika and immediately remove from the heat.
Add the shrimp stirring to coat it with the oil and cook in the oven for 2 minutes until it becomes pink and opaque. You may need to stir the shrimp and return it to the oven for another minute or so. Do not overcook as it will cause the shrimp to become rubbery.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with the parsley. Serve warm with slices of crusty baguette for soaking up the oil. Shrimp can stay at room temperature for up to 2 hours.
