I had an appetizer similar to this at a recent a while ago. I honestly wanted to pour the sauce in a glass and drink it up! Of course, I had to try and recreate. My recipe for Angry Shrimp can be used as an appetizer, or serve with rice as a meal. You only need a few simple ingredients and can adjust the heat level to your liking. This entire dish can be on your plate in just about ten minutes. It’s that easy. The flavor is to die for.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. In an oven-safe dish, combine the garlic, paprika, lemon juice, olive oil, red pepper flakes and mix well. Add the shrimp and coat well with the sauce.

Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 4 minutes. Uncover and allow to bake an additional minute or two. Remove the Angry Shrimp from the oven and garnish with fresh chopped parsley.
