Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 1 lb. shrimp, cleaned
  • 1 lb. mushrooms, sliced
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chili pepper (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
  • Rosemary sprigs to garnish
  • Thick bread slices
  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add the garlic and fry until lightly golden. Don´t let them turn brown because they will turn bitter. Transfer the garlic to a plate.
  2. Add the shrimp and sauté for 3 minutes, just until they turn pink. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to the plate with the garlic.
  3. Add the mushrooms to the skillet and stir until they look cooked, (about 5 minutes) and juicy. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Incorporate the shrimp and garlic, add the chili pepper, if using, and heat through. Add the parsley right before serving.
  5. Put the shrimp in a dish, top with rosemary sprigs, and serve with bread on the side.
