INSTRUCTIONS
  1.  In a small bowl combine 2 cloves of finely minced garlic, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, parsley, lemon juice and lemon zest.  Set aside.
  2.  In a medium bowl add the shrimp, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, and sugar and toss to evenly coat.
  3.  Heat 1 Tablespoon olive oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat until just smoking.  Add the shrimp in a single layer.  Allow shrimp to brown without stirring for about 1 minute.  Stir and continue to cook until the shrimp are pink and the center is opaque.  Remove shrimp to a bowl, cover and set aside.
