Shrimp with Garlic, Oil, and Hot Peppers

this was really yummy. i couldn't find crushed red pepper flakes here so i used a fresh chilli instead. i think it would have been a little better with the crushed red pepper. here's the recipe...

...recipe from Patricia Wells' Trattoria: Simple and Robust Fare Inspired by the Small Family Restaurants of Italy
1 pound large shrimp, in their shells
1/2 cup extra-virgen olive oil
4 fresh plump garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons freshe thyme leaves
1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
coarse sea salt
1/4 cup fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped

In a skillet large enough to hold all the shrimp in a single layer, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the garlic, thyme, red pepper flakes, and shrimp. Toss to coat with oil, and cook, stirring occationally, just until the shrimp are pink.

Remove the pan from the heat and , with a slotted spoon, transfer the shrimp to a serving platter. Pour the sauce over the shrimp, sprinkle with coarse salt and shower with parsley.
