Shrimp in Ginger Butter Sauce
Using a small saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the peeled garlic cloves and boil for 2-3 minutes. Drain and chop the garlic finely.
In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the shrimp, garlic, parsley, thyme and ginger. Add the salt and pepper and cook shrimp over high heat for 2 minutes. Flip them over and cook for 2 more minutes. Add the sherry and cook for 1 minute, then, using a slotted spoon, remove shrimp and set aside, covering them to keep warm.
Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, butter and cornstarch to the skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring, until sauce thickens slightly, about 1 minute. Add the shrimp back into the sauce, cook for a minute or so, then serve. Add red pepper flakes, if desired.
