Lemony Garlic Shrimp

Shrimp is a popular holiday food that's easy to dress up with Med flavors. Increase the quantities as necessary to serve at a party. No need for cocktail sauce.

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 pound cooked shrimp, fresh or frozen, thawed
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until barely golden, about 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice, parsley, and shrimp. Season with pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
