Garlic Shrimp with Basil
From Cook's Country
Our Garlic Shrimp with Basil recipe combines the simple, big flavors of garlic and basil with sweet-tasting, quick-cooking shrimp. Rinsing the capers well before mincing and adding them to the pan sauce was important in this recipe, as it removes the brine they are packed in and keeps the Garlic Shrimp with Basil from becoming too salty. Searing the shrimp over high heat until just barely cooked through, then setting them aside until the sauce is prepared proved to be the best technique for this recipe. This way, one pan can be used for cooking both the shrimp and the sauce, and the sauce will pick up any flavors left behind by the shrimp.
This garlicky dish can be served with crusty bread or over linguine or white rice.
