We may be a different family on the block because we like bold and different flavors during the holidays, not just sweet baked goods. Savory foods such as a good honey ham, rosemary turkey or even this Thai Garlic Shrimp recipe is the way to go when it comes to dinner.
Start by mixing the last 6 ingredients together in a small shallow bowl and set aside. Drizzle about 2 tablespoons of Carbonell Extra Light Olive Oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Sauté the garlic and green onions for just a few minutes until both become soft. It doesn’t take long, maybe 3-4 minutes.
Add the pre-cooked shrimp to the pan and stir to cover with oil. Cooking should only take a few minutes because we’re just wanting the shrimp to be heated through since it’s already pre-cooked.
Pour the ketchup mixture over the shrimp, stir, and let sauce thicken about 2-3 minutes.
When it’s done you serve over rice and you have a delicious meal everyone will devour in minutes. The best part, of course, is the Carbonell Extra Light Olive Oil offering a delicate light flavor to a mix of already amazing list of ingredients.

- 2 Tablespoons Carbonell Extra Light Olive Oil
