Peel shrimp, discarding heads and tails. Place a cast iron frying pan over a hot flame. When it's hot, add oil and fry garlic and red pepper flakes for a few seconds. Add shrimp and cook just until they turn pink and slightly curl, about 2 minutes. Add paprika and remove shrimp.

Deglaze the pan with brandy or apple juice. Reduce to half and stir in butter until melted. Add parsley and pour sauce over shrimp.

Serve very hot, accompanied by bread if you like, to soak up the flavorful sauce.

Recipe by Dawnula Koukol, former PCC Cooks instructor

A garlickly and slightly smokey shrimp dish that can be served as an appetizer or a main dish with a hearty starch.
