Spanish-Style Shrimp with Garlic and Olive Oil
Gambas al ajillo, or shrimp with garlic, is one of the best known Spanish tapas. Briny-sweet shrimp are gently cooked in a generous amount of olive oil infused with toasted garlic and, oftentimes, dried red chilies. The dish comes together quickly and easily, and with just a handful of ingredients, many of which you probably already have in the kitchen. In our rendition of gambas al ajillo, we add smoked paprika and pepper flakes, as well as finishing touches of parsley and lemon wedges. Feel free to use shrimp that are slightly larger or smaller, but be sure to adjust the cooking time. Serve crusty bread alongside for dipping into the flavorful oil.
