Spicy Jumbo Shrimp

This is a fairly simple shrimp recipe that has a nice spicy kick to it. The Italian and I bought fresh Brazilian shrimp at Borough Market in south London and served them as an appetiser for a lobster dinner. We also had them with asparagus and crusty bread. They were delicious!



  • Shrimp (about 12 large, uncooked)
  • Olive Oil (1 T)
  • Garlic
  • Red Pepper Flakes (~1 tsp)
  • Salt to taste


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet pan. Add the garlic and sautee until the garlic becomes brown, infusing the oil.

Add the uncooked shrimp and sautee  8-10 minutes on one side.

Flip shrimp to the other side and add the red pepper flakes and salt. Sautee for another 8-10 minutes or until shrimp are done.

Serve hot with vegetables and crusty bread.
