Garlic Shrimp fry

Shrimps are one of my favorite. This pan fried shrimp recipe is one of the easy recipes to prepare when your craving to have something fried with spice. Not shelling the shrimp gives it a glorious spice filled flavor of garlic. I used fresh garlic as I was out of stock of garlic paste. If you have garlic paste, using it would allow the shrimps to absorb the juices faster from the marinade paste.

Cooking time: 15 -20 minutes
