Recipe For Garlicky Noodles and Baby Shrimp

6 tablespoons salted butter, or more if you like

11 oz pre cooked baby shrimp, thawed and water squeezed out

1 teaspoon heaped fresh garlic, chopped to a pulp

8 oz spaghetti cooked until en dente

Freshly cracked black pepper

Chiffonade of parsley or a sprig of parsley would do.\

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a wide skillet.

 Stir fry the baby shrimp for  a couple of minutes on high heat and set aside.

In the same skillet, melt the butter on medium heat.

Toss in garlic and fry for a few minutes, being careful not to burn it.

Tumble in the cooked spaghetti and continue to fold over with a tong, making sure each strand is enrobed in butter.

Divide the spaghetti into two bowls, top with the shrimp and loads of cracked pepper.

Garnish with anything green really!
