Garlic Shrimp

I begged this recipe from a server at Dali, another Boston restaurant.

Makes 4 servings

1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 head garlic, slivered

2 to 3 dried chili peppers

Salt to taste

12 to 15 large shrimp (about 3/4 to 1 pound), peeled and deveined

Lemon, sliced

Heat the first four ingredients over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the garlic is nutty and starts turning slightly brown.

Add the shrimp and cook until just done, a minute or two depending on their size. Squeeze in some lemon and serve sizzling hot accompanied by good bread.
