Shrimp with Garlic
Gambas al Ajillo
This is one of the most famous of the Spanish tapas. Serve in individual earthenware dishes with the oil sizzling hot.
Prep Time: 15 min. [PT15M]
Cook Time: 10 min. [PT10M]
1 chili pepper
Soak the chili pepper in water to prevent it from breaking, then cut into rings. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the sliced garlic and chili pepper. Add the shrimp, season with salt and pepper, and fry for one minute.
As soon as the shrimp start to become opaque, cover the dish to prevent the oil from splashing or getting cold and serve. This dish can either be served as a starter or with pasta cooked al dente, fried chickpeas, or white rice. The other ingredient should always be stirred into the hot oil used for cooking the shrimp.
