6 large shrimp per person (unpeeled)
8 cloves garlic (unpeeled)
1/2 cup olive oil
3.5 oz butter
Freshly-chopped parsley
A little Brandy de Jerez


Place a black steel frying pan over a hot flame. When hot, add half and half oil and butter and fry the unpeeled shrimp until they change color. Add the unpeeled cloves of garlic and sauté with the shrimp. Remove the shrimp and keep warm. Deglaze the pan with the brandy. Reduce to half and beat in the butter. Add the freshly-chopped parsley and pour the sauce over the shrimp. Serve very hot.
