"If you like shrimp and LOVE garlic, I hope you give this fast and delicious recipe a try soon. Enjoy!"
INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt to taste
6 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon caper brine
1 1/2 teaspoons cold butter
1/3 cup chopped Italian flat leaf parsley,
divided
1 1/2 tablespoons cold butter
water, as needed
DIRECTIONS:
1.Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet over high heat until it just begins to smoke. Place shrimp in an even layer on the bottom of the pan and cook for 1 minute without stirring.
2.Season shrimp with salt; cook and stir until shrimp begin to turn pink, about 1 minute.
3.Stir in garlic and red pepper flakes; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in lemon juice, caper brine, 1 1/2 teaspoon cold butter, and half the parsley.
4.Cook until butter has melted, about 1 minute, then turn heat to low and stir in 1 1/2 tablespoon cold butter. Cook and stir until all butter has melted to form a thick sauce and shrimp are pink and opaque, about 2 to 3 minutes.
5.Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl; continue to cook butter sauce, adding water 1 teaspoon at a time if too thick, about 2 minutes. Season with salt to taste.
6.Serve shrimp topped with the pan sauce. Garnish with remaining flat-leaf parsley.

DH makes a similar dish. Haven't tried the caper brine! We do like capers.

 I'm not so sure about caper brine. Do they just mean the juice from the capers?

Sigh.  I miss living at the beach.  (Ya'll already knew that since I complain so much about having to move.  lol)

There's a pretty good seafood market here and I'm in the mood.  Thanks for posting this!
