Week 52: Garlic Shrimp

The Recipe
3 tbsp soy sauce
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tsp olive oil
juice from 1 lime
1/4 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp chilli (optional)
1 tbsp brown sugar
200g shrimps
1 avocado, diced
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil

Mix together the first 7 ingredients (soy sauce through brown sugar) for a marinade. Dump in shrimps and let them soak for 15 minutes. Drain and cook on a hot pan for 2-3 minutes, discarding further liquid as it drains from the shrimps.

Toss with avocado, lemon juice and a bit more olive oil.

The Verdict
REALLY yummy! I left out the optional chilli as I was serving this to less spice-loving people, but I actually think it could have carried it, without being too spicy even for them. It tasted terrific, and we could easily have eaten more. Possibly one of the best new recipes I've tried all year.
