  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil—the liquid gold
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced—the aromatic whispers
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes—the fiery crescendo

Instructions:

Act I – Searing Prelude:

  1. Begin with a prelude of sizzling olive oil in a pan, where minced garlic releases its aromatic enchantment.
  2. Sprinkle in the red pepper flakes, creating a gentle heat that sets the stage for the seafood symphony.
