Time 30 minutes

Units Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, or more as needed
  • 3 or 4 big cloves garlic, cut into slivers
  • About 1 1/2 pounds shrimp, 20 to 30 per pound, peeled, rinsed, and dried
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot paprika
  • Chopped fresh parsley leaves for garnish

Instructions

  1. Warm the olive oil in a large, broad ovenproof skillet or heatproof baking pan over low heat. There should be enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan; don’t skimp. Add the garlic and cook until it turns golden, a few minutes.
  2. Raise the heat to medium-high and add the shrimp, some salt and pepper, the cumin, and the paprika. Stir to blend and continue to cook, shaking the pan once or twice and turning the shrimp once or twice, until they are pink all over and the mixture is bubbly, 5 to 10 minutes. Garnish and serve immediately.
