Savory Garlic Shrimp with Roasted Peppers
Serve these shrimp next to a crunchy baguette to mop up all that goodness or serve them over some pasta or rice for an incredible meal. Either way, a bottle of Spanish wine is in order here for the ultimate Spanish experience.

Savory Garlic Shrimp with Roasted Peppers
The shrimp I used I bought frozen and thawed out. As always, to make things easier and cheaper. However, you can always use fresh shrimp. Either way, make sure to pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. This way the shrimp can absorb all the flavors in the pan.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: You want to saute the shrimp on a medium heat for 1 minute per side. Any longer and they will get a tough texture. I used white wine for the sauce. However, you can sub for any broth of your choice with a dash of lemon juice.
