Shrimp With Beans and Basil

 2 cloves garlic, peeled
 Sea salt
 1 pound medium shrimp, deveined
 1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed well
 1 cup loosely packed basil leaves (torn in half if large)
 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion, sprinkled with salt and set aside
 Coarsely ground black pepper
 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
 1/4 cup best quality olive oil.

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Drop the garlic in the water and season it with
salt. When it boils, add the shrimp and cook for 3 1/2 minutes, until just cooked through.
Drain the shrimp, run under cool water and peel.

2. In a large bowl, combine the shrimp, beans, basil and onion. Season with salt and
pepper. Sprinkle with vinegar, and fold together. Sprinkle with olive oil and fold again
gently until all the ingredients are well blended and the basil is lightly wilted. Taste and
adjust seasoning. (Note: If you are serving this more than 2 hours later, add vinegar
just before serving, or it will turn the basil black.)
