Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup shrimp and 1 lemon wedge)

To determine when the shrimp are done--beyond looking for the characteristic pink or orange marks--check to see that the shrimp flesh has changed from translucent to opaque white. Serve this tapas-style dish with grilled bread, if desired.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add pepper, garlic, and bay leaf; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Increase heat to medium-high. Add shrimp; sauté until shrimp have pink or orange markings and white, opaque flesh (about 4 minutes). Remove from heat. Sprinkle with salt. Discard bay leaf. Sprinkle with parsley, and serve with lemon wedges.
