Mark's Giovanni Shrimp Recipe

If you like shrimp and you like garlic, this recipe is for you! This recipe is my hubby's take on the Hawaii North shore shrimp wagon. Stop there if you ever get a chance...amazing shrimp!!!

~ 1 1/2 lbs. raw shrimp thawed
~ 5 cloves fresh garlic chopped
~ 6 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
~ red pepper flakes (1 tsp. for mild add more if desired, we like it spicy!)
~ lime juice from 1/2 a lime
~ 2 pinches of kosher salt
~ 5 turns of a pepper mill
~ white rice (we like Jasmine or coconut thai)

Saute garlic and olive oil over medium heat for 3 minutes. Add shrimp to garlic and olive oil. Add pepper flakes, lime juice, salt and fresh pepper. Cook shrimp til pink, approx. 5-7 minutes do not overcook. Put shrimp over bed of rice. Top with more red pepper flakes, black pepper and lime if desired. Divine!
