Shrimp in garlic oil - Healthy and easy to make tapas


This tapa can be cooked very quickly and with little effort. The abundant use of garlic is very healthy.

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • 500 g shrimp (prawns) (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 chili peppers
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 150 ml olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation

Peel the garlic into quarters.

If you have fresh prawns, remove the peel and remove the insides.
Wash and core the peppers. Cut into thin rings. Caution: do not rub your hands in your eyes; it burns even when you have washed your hands.

Heat the oil in a frying pan. Use pre-cooked frozen prawns, add just the chili peppers and garlic for two minutes at medium heat, cook in oil and then add the prawns and cook for another 1-2 minutes. The prawns just need to be heated. If the prawns are heated too long, they can become tough.

You can use fresh prawns; all ingredients are simultaneously added to the oil for cooking. Cook for 2-3 minutes in hot oil.

Serve the prawns immediately in a bowl.

Preparation time: 15-20 minutes.
