    Lennie's Note:

    This is always a hit if I have dinner guests who like shrimp. It's simple, but with a wonderful taste -- another great recipe from Canadian Living. I typically serve it with fresh bread, small steaks, salad, and I'll do roast potatoes if I have a guest who I know doesn't like seafood. Note: if you don't have the steaks, expect this to only serve 4; it's that good.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Because this recipe is simple, it all depends on quality; don't skimp on any of the ingredients-- use good quality extra-virgin olive oil, fresh shrimp, fresh parsley, etc.
    2. 2
      And, yes, you read it right-- 14 cloves of garlic.
    3. 3
      Also note that you're not going to actually consume all that olive oil, a lot of it will pool into the bottom of the serving bowl-- of course, if you want to sop that lovely garlicky oil up with fresh bread, who am I to stop you!
    4. 4
      First, have everything ready-- shrimp peeled, parsley and garlic chopped, etc.
    5. 5
      Next, put a LARGE pot of water on, add about 2 tbsp salt to it, and get it on the heat to boil.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, in a skillet, heat oil over low heat and cook the garlic, salt and pepper flakes, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes or until the garlic is golden, but NOT browned.
    7. 7
      Increase the heat to medium-high and add the shrimp; stirfry for about 3 minutes or until the shrimp have turned a light pink; don't overcook or the shrimp will be tough.
    8. 8
      Meanwhile, your spaghetti should be cooked al dente; drain it well then return to the pot.
    9. 9
      Pour the shrimp mixture over the cooked spaghetti, add the chopped parsley, and toss well.
    10. 10
      Serve immediately in a large, pre-warmed, shallow serving bowl.

      I haven't tried this exact recipe yet however anything with garlic wins top billing with me. I have however created this almost exactly in a cold version but included red wine vinegar.

      Mighty fine! Used 1/2 cup olive oil, 10 large cloves garlic, 1 lb shrimp and 1 lb spaghettini. Didn't have the parsley. We love garlic but we found this to be a bit overpowering. Next time will use the full amount of oil and maybe half the garlic amount. Definitely a keeper.
