  • A Large Pan
  • A small paring knife or garlic crusher
  • A chopping board


  • 2 or 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 clove Chopped Garlic
  • 1 pound Medium to large raw shrimp (with or without shell and deveined)
  • 1/3 pinches Salt to suit your taste


  • Using the knife or garlic presser if you have one, finely chop or mince the garlic.
  • Roughly chop the parsley and set it to one side.
  • Heat the oil in the large pan and when it’s hot, add the shrimp along with the garlic, chopped parsley, and salt.
  • Let this cook for 5 to 6 minutes, turning a few times and checking to see if the shrimp is pink on the outside and opaque on the inside before removing it from the heat. Once you’re confident that it’s fully cooked it’s ready to serve. Bon appetite!
