A tasty chilli shrimp recipe infused with garlic and chilli to give it a bit of a kick!
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 fresh red chilli pepper, according to size and taste, minced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 pound unshelled medium shrimp
1/2 cup white wine
Salt, if needed
1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves
Pour the olive oil into a wide, heavy-bottomed frying pan. Then add the chile and garlic and, over moderate to low heat, to infuse rather than to color, fry for 2 minutes, stirring all the time. Then turn the heat to high, add the shrimp, and stir-fry them for another 2 minutes or until they turn pink and are just, delicately, cooked; you want the flesh to stay tender. Pour in the white wine and let it bubble up. You don't want a liquid puddle around the shrimp, just enough wine to let the juices ooze into a winy sauce. Another minute or so should do it. Season with the salt, if necessary, and then turn into your bowl and sprinkle with parsley.
Eat with a fresh baguette.
