Number of Servings: 2


    3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    12 oz jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    2 large garlic cloves, very finely chopped
    2 tablespoons small capers, drained
    1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
    3 cups leafy baby greens or Bibb lettuce torn


In a very large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until shimmering. Season the shrimp generously with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook over high heat until they are lightly browned and barely opaque, about 2 minutes.

Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet, along with the garlic and capers, and cook for 30 seconds. Turn the shrimp and add the lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of the chopped parsley. Cover and cook over low heat until the shrimp are cooked through and the sauce is slightly reduced, 4 to 5 minutes.

Cover salad plates with lettuce, torn into bite sized pieces. Transfer the shrimp to the plates and spoon the Provenšal sauce on top. Sprinkle the shrimp with the remaining 1 tablespoon of parsley and serve.

Serving Size: A generous lunch serving for 2 people.
