Add ten shrimp in a single layer. Cook just until golden and orange, 10 seconds; flip shrimp quickly. Cook 10 seconds more and immediately transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining shrimp and 1 teaspoon oil.
Reduce heat to medium-high and add remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Add garlic and cook until light golden brown, about two minutes. Stir in paprika. Return shrimp to pan.
