Preparation -- 5 minutes

Thaw the shrimps in a bowl first if needed, you can easily do this by placing them in lukewarm water. Pat them dry using paper kitchen towels. Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves.

Add 6 or more tablespoons of olive oil to a skillet along with the garlic. Sauté until the oil has absorbed the garlic completely before you also add the shrimps.

Season with pepper, salt and a teaspoon of ground chili.
