Place the olive oil, minced garlic and whole chili pepper in a pot over medium-hot heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
Once the oil is hot, add shrimp and cover the pan. Cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes on each side or until internal temperature of 145°F is reached. Shrimp should be an opaque pink color.
Remove the cooked garlic shrimp from the pan and serve while hot. Serve à la carte or tossed with pasta and sprinkled with your favorite herbs.
