Gambas al ajillo

Adapted from No Recipes and Serious Eats

125 mL olive oil
10 cloves garlic, 1/2 minced and 1/2 smashed
2 dried cascabel chiles (or 1 medium dried guajillo chile), seeds removed and crushed into flakes
450 g shrimp
1 lemon, juiced or 60-89 ml brandy / cognac / dry sherry
salt and pepper, parsley, sweet paprika, red pepper flakes

No Picture — I forgot the parsley and they were eaten too fast (slightly overcooked because they were a little tough)!

Combine the minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and shrimp to marinate. Saute smashed garlic and chiles/pepper flakes in olive oil until fragrant, about 10 minutes on medium-low heat. Fry shrimp until cooked, about 2 minutes on medium-high heat. Sprinkle on lemon juice and parsley. Serve hot.
