, thinly sliced
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
In a dry skillet over medium-low heat, toast

for a couple of minutes until warm and fragrant. Transfer to a plate to cool.
Romaine Lettuce (2 heads)
into wide ribbons.

When they are barely pink on one side, flip them all over and let cook for maybe a minute. When they have all barely turned pink, remove from heat immediately and allow to finish cooking in the warm oil.
Once the oil has cooled a bit, make the dressing. Spoon off 1/4 cup of olive oil from the shrimp into a bowl, making sure to grab a generous amount of the garlic slivers. Squeeze juice from the
into the bowl and mix thoroughly. Taste and add a pinch of

and more lemon juice if necessary.
Place chopped lettuce onto serving plates and drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with
Feta Cheese (1/4 cup)
, pumpkin seeds,
Fresh Parsley (1/4 cup)
and slivered peppers. Top with shrimp and drizzle with a bit more dressing. Serve with lemon wedges on the side. Spoon more of the garlic olive oil from the shrimp into a bowl with crusty bread for dipping.
