Friday Food: Spicy Garlic Shrimp

We don't feature seafood often enough in our Friday Food so we wanted to make sure we got back to it.  Here is a simple shrimp recipe that would taste great with you favorite greens to accompany it or with a fluffy bed of rice. Enjoy this one.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pound large shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes depends on your heat preference
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp parsley or cilantro chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

The Game Plan: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat.
  2. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add the shrimp and cook for 3 minutes or until shrimp are pink and opaque.
  4. Stir in the garlic, red pepper flakes and lemon zest; cook for 1-2 minutes more.
  5. Add in the lemon juice and parsley then serve.
