Number of Servings: 8


    2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    6 large cloves garlic (1-1/2 oz.), halved lengthwise, peeled, and sliced 1/8 inch thick
    1-1/2 pound shrimp (20 to 25 per lb., about 32), peeled, deveined, and patted dry
    1/3 cup dry white wine
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
    1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest


Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 425F.

Put the oil and garlic in a small (8-inch) skillet and set over
medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic just begins to turn golden, 8 to 12 minutes. Strain the garlic and oil through a sieve set over a bowl; spread the garlic slices on a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.

Put the shrimp in a gratin or baking dish that is about 7x9 inches. Pour the garlic oil and wine over the shrimp and season with 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. (I usually coat shrimp with oil/wine mixture in a bowl and then transfer shrimp to baking dish.)

Roast, stirring once, until the shrimp are pink, opaque, and cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle the garlic slices, basil, and lemon zest over the shrimp, stir to combine, and serve immediately.
