Portuguese Garlic Shrimp

The Cookware Chef David's Using: 12” Blue Carbon Steel Frying Pan


1 cup Spanish extra virgin olive oil

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined (reserve the shells)

2 Tbsp white wine

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 Tbsp parsley, chopped

1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped

Salt and black pepper to taste


Begin by toasting the shrimp shells in the Spanish olive oil. This will infuse the olive oil with additional shrimp flavor. Strain out the oil.

Get a pan hot and add the shrimp infused oil. Quickly sear the shrimp. Once they start to turn pink, add the red pepper flakes, garlic, wine, and lemon juice. Finish with paprika, black pepper, parsley, and cilantro.
