Thanks to the heart-healthy garlic, olive oil, and cayenne pepper in this recipe, it makes a great, delicious and healthy recipe that works well as an appetizer or a main dish. It will become a favorite of anyone who loves garlic and spicy food. While many shrimp stir-fry recipes include butter, this recipe uses only olive oil for maximum health benefits. You don't lose any flavor by skipping the butter. In fact, it tastes better without it.

24 raw shrimp, deveined and peeled
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. olive oil
1 T. fresh Italian parsley
a sprinkle of black pepper, to taste
cayenne pepper, to taste

Heat up the olive oil in a skillet or wok.
Add the garlic, shrimp, black pepper, and cayenne.
Stir regularly over low heat until shrimp turn pink on both sides, about 3-4 minutes. By keeping the heat low, it will ensure the garlic doesn't turn brown. Burned garlic turns the dish bitter. When the shrimp are just about done, add the parsley and mix well.

Serve alone or on a bed of lettuce, rice, or pasta. You can also add broccoli or other vegetables during cooking for a great shrimp veggie stir-fry. These shrimp also make a great appetizer. Arrange them on a plate with a toothpick in each one for easy eating. Your guests will devour them fast, so make sure to make a lot!
