Directions

Heat 3 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add half of the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the chickpeas and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Using a potato masher or fork, mash the chickpeas. Add the chicken stock and mix in. Taste, and season with salt and pepper if necessary. Keep warm while you cook the shrimp.

Heat a large skillet over high heat. Sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil to the pan along with the remaining garlic and the red pepper flakes and cook for 1 minute. Add the shrimp and cook until pink and lightly browned on the edges, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the white wine and cook for 1 minute. Add the parsley, butter and lemon juice and cook for 1 minute. Taste and add more salt and pepper if necessary.

Transfer the chickpea mash to a serving dish. Pour the shrimp and sauce over top, drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and serve immediately.

    It is an excellent, healthy low calorie dish. My wife and I have made it 4 times already and
    have added this recipe in as one to cook many times. Just the right amount of spice, but complex enough flavors to enjoy very bite.

    This was so easy to make and so delicious. I am not a huge fan of chickpeas but I have to say, this was outstanding. I saw Brian make this on his show and thought I would give it a try. I actually used cooked jumbo shrimp and it worked out fine. I also used Koroneiki EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) and it was a nice blend. The dish was a little spicy but not in an offensive way - just right. Really excellent recipe. I will make this again. My husband raved about it.
