10 servings
3 lb Shrimp (16-20/lb)                   
1 ea Chili Pepper Seeded/Minced
3 c  Spanish Olive Oil                   
1 ea Loaf French Bread 1" Slices
4 ea Large Red Bell Peppers *            
1 x  Feta Cheese (optional)
8 ea Cloves Garlic **               
*     Bell peppers should be seeded and cut into thin julienne strips.
**    Garlic cloves should be peeled and cut into 1/4-inch chunks.

   Slit the shrimp up the back with a sharp knife.  Remove the vein, but do
   not peel shrimp.  Set them aside.  Combine 2 cups of olive oil and the
   red pepper strips in a deep heavy skillet or saute pan.  Heat slowly.
   Cook very gently until the peppers are extremely tender but not at all
   browned.  (The oil will turn a lovely rose color.)  Set peppers aside.
   Pour the remaining oil into another skillet with the garlic pieces.  Stew
   the garlic slowly for 4 to 5 minutes, until tender and golden.  Scoop out
   the garlic with a strainer or slotted spoon and add it to the peppers.
   Heat the garlic oil until it ripples.  Throw in the minced chili pepper
   and the shrimp.  Saute, tossing the shrimp in the oil, until they turn
   pink and are just done.  To serve, spoon the peppers and their oil into a
   serving dish.  Surround with the shrimp.  Serve with bread.  Each diner
   soaks slices of bread in the oil and piles the bread with peppers and
   garlic.  Feta cheese may be eaten with it and the shrimp goes on top.
