This is one of those meals that, if I don't feel like cooking, Andrew can put together in 20 minutes. If you don't care for spice, you can skip the red pepper all together - garlicky shrimp is a close runner-up to spicy garlicky shrimp! I always keep a bag of shrimp in the freezer - they are a versatile, quick-thawing way to incorporate protein on nights that you forgot to thaw the meat, were too lazy to plan a meal, or had a recipe go awry.
20 medium frozen shrimp - thawed and peeled
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
red pepper flakes
Lightly saute onions and garlic in butter and olive oil.
Add red pepper flakes, paprika, salt, and pepper. I used a pinch of flakes, about 1 tbsp of paprika, and salt and pepper to taste - but tailor this to your personal likes. Add shrimp, toss to coat, and heat through.
