Definitely one for the garlic lovers!
Last week, we went to a friend’s birthday at a Russian bathhouse (called a Banya). If you haven’t been to a bathhouse, it’s basically lots of sauna, relaxing, eating and drinking!
One of the best things about the bathhouse we go to is their food. From appetizers to entrees, the food is some of the best we’ve ever eaten. We always make sure to get their calamari and, most importantly, the shrimp in garlic sauce. The beauty of this appetizer is in its simplicity and unique flavor. This week we decided to try it ourselves!
Shrimp cooks very quickly making this a great appetizer when you don’t have much time (or will) to make something. Just make sure you don’t overcook the shrimp because it gets tough very quickly!

We added some cayenne to the sauce to spice things up. The garlic and cayenne combo adds a unique kick that goes really well with the shrimp. It ended up being absolutely delicious!
