Garlic Shrimp

Ever walk by the seafood deli section in the store and see this delicious shrimp on sale but do not buy it just because you have no idea what to do with it?  Well, I have the perfect recipe for you.  It’s simple, quick, and delicious.  I would say this dish remind me a little of Thailand.  I love rice noodles and with some fresh garlic shrimp on it, it makes my mouth water.

Also when you do walk by that seafood deli section and buy that shrimp, buy the ones that have not bean cleaned.  The deli will charge you more for cleaned shrimp and it is so easy to clean it yourself.

What is your favorite shrimp recipe?

    I have to admit, I buy the cleaned shrimp. It kind of grosses me out to clean it and then I dont want to eat it. LOL This recipe looks like a keeper, I love all the flavor you have infused here!

    To echo some of the other commenters: GORGEOUS photos, Ewa! They transport me to Thailand (or the Caribbean), even though it’s in the 30s here. I’m loving the pineapple in the background, too. :)

    One can never have enough shrimp dishes! It looks great, the pineapple is a tease though, it’s not in the recipe;)

      Ethan – yes you caught me – i needed a good background and the wall was just not doing it. So i stuck the pineapple there :) But you know shrimp and pineapple, some lime juice and cilantro would be awesome. I think we might just have a new recipe here :)
