If I'm home alone and fancy a hot lunch – this is a great meal for one. It would be super easy to increase the yield if cooking for more than one person.
How to Make Baked Egg and Garlic Shrimp
De-vein the shrimp and remove the shells. I even remove the tails for this dish for easy eating! I think about 7-8 large shrimp per person is a good amount. Add a little olive oil to a pan, squeeze in some garlic paste (or minced garlic, if you prefer), then sauté the shrimp for a few minutes on each side until almost cooked through.
Spray a small ovenproof dish with non-stick spray and add the shrimp and garlic. Crack two eggs over the top and season with salt and black pepper.
Place in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the egg whites are cooked. Sprinkle with chopped chives and serve.
