Roasted Garlic Shrimp (served with diced sweet potatoes)
Serves 2
1 pound raw shrimp
2 TBSP olive oil
2 TBSP chopped roasted garlic – I used spice world brand garlic – you can also make your own by following the recipe at the bottom of this post
Juice of one lemonDirections
1. Heat skillet to HIGH heat and add 2 TBSP of extra virgin olive oil
2. Once oil is hot, add roasted garlic and lemon juice (be careful because oil may splatter since it will be extremely hot) – you want it very hot so garlic should cook almost immediately
3. After about 30 seconds to 1 minute, add shrimp and allow to sear
on each side for 4-5 minutes. This will form a dark brown/golden crust on each sideHow to make fresh, homemade roasted garlic:
1 whole head/bulb of garlic
1 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
2. Peel away the outer layers of skin of the garlic bulb, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact; leave garlic bulb whole. Using a sharp knife, slice 1/4-inch off of the pointed end of the garlic bulbs, exposing the individual cloves of garlic
3. Put the garlic head in a small ovenproof dish. Pour 1/2 TBSP olive oil over the top of bulb and let it sink in between the cloves. Wait 2
minutes and then repeat with another 1/2 TBSP olive oil over garlic bulb
4. Place on a baking sheet and wrap with aluminum foil. Bake approximately 45 to 60 minutes or until cloves are browned at the
exposed end and soft throughout. Remove from oven
5. Allow the roasted garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning yourself. Use a small knife cut the skin slightly around each clove. Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins
6. Chop garlic
