The simpler you cook the food, the tastier it becomes. You can taste the natural flavor of the food without drowning it in different flavors. If you want to enhance the flavor, you can dip it in any of your favorite sauce.  The simpler the better. You will be amazed how wonderful and tastier food is in its natural form and flavor.  Today I sauteed the shrimps in garlic and little oil just until they turned pink. 

2 lbs medium-sized shrimps with shell
2 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons sesame oil (you can use any oil)
1/2 teaspoon salt
sprigs of cilantro - for garnishing

Wash the shimps well with cold water and cut the two long whiskers/hair with a kitchen scissors on the head of the shrimps. Heat the oil in a pan to high and add the garlic until a little brown.  Add the shrimps and cook just until every shrimp turns pink.  Add the salt. Do not over cook. Put on a serving plate and top with cilantro.

*Serve with steamed rice with your favorite sauce. My favorite is vinegar with chili sauce. 

*Serves 3 or 4
