Cooked simply in spanish olive oil, garlic and chopped chili, this shrimp tapas dish is excellent served with crusty bread. You can use shrimps with shell on (without heads) or cook it with peeled shrimp.

Ingredients:

  • 500 g raw jumbo shrimp, cleaned and peeled with tail on
  • 2 small red chili (thai or bird chili is best)
  • 6 tbs spanish olive oil
  • 2-5 garlic cloves, finely chopped (this depends on how much you love or hate garlic! but use at least 2 cloves)
  • pinch of paprika
  • salt

I love this dish. With crusty day old baguette, this goes well with a nice glass of beer or Pinot Gris.
