Tomas’ shrimp pil pil

Shrimp Pil Pil = YUM!

This is so incredibly delicious, you are going to want to run out & buy shrimp right away.

For reals.

Shrimp Pil Pil is one of our family’s favorite dishes & whenever I need a pick-me-up I have Tomas make it for me (I make sure to keep frozen shrimp in stock at all times & buy extra whenever it’s on sale).

You’ll need:

  • 2 pounds of medium-large shrimp, peel on
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 6-7 cloves of garlic
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Paprika
  • Sal & Pepper

To do:

Heat olive oil, add garlic and spices until hot (30 seconds or so), then add the shrimp. Cook on meduim-high until pink all the way through – a couple minutes on each side. When done toss in the parsley and serve with crusty baguette and a salad tossed in a simple vinaigrette.

Serves my family of five with no leftovers.
