Recipe

One of my favorite hot tapas—and one that’s extremely easy to make—is shrimp with garlic sauce. Serve with lots of bread for dunking.

Yield: Serves 12

Ingredients

  • 24 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1½ cups extra virgin olive oil, preferably Spanish
  • 2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, with their tails
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons finely minced curly parsley

Directions

1. Place the garlic and oil in a bowl and set aside for at least 4 hours, stirring occasionally.

2. When ready to prepare the dish, place the shrimp in a large bowl. Gradually add the salt to the bowl, tossing the shrimp to evenly coat them. Set aside for 10 minutes.

3. Divide the oil and garlic between 2 large skillets over medium heat. Allow the garlic to cook until just golden at the edges. Stir half each of the paprika and cayenne into each skillet. Season with black pepper. Raise the heat to medium-high and divide the shrimp between the skillets. Stir the shrimp regularly, coating them with the oil, until they’re barely cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.

4. With a slotted spoon, quickly transfer the shrimp to heated serving dishes and spoon equal amounts of the garlic over and around each serving. Divide and sprinkle the parsley over each serving and then spoon in the remaining garlic oil. Sprinkle with additional salt if desired.
