    An American in Spain's Note:

    This is probably one of the most famous Spanish tapas, available throughout Spain. Although my recipe is original, it is authentic as I have constantly revised it duplicating the flavors and consistency I have had in the best tapas bars. Although this can be made in any oven proof dish, I recommend a "cazuela" (terra cotta dish). Although difficult to find, it can be purchased online through "www.tienda.com".

    3. 3
      Sprinkle paprika and salt on top of oil.
    4. 4
      If the dish can be used on the stove burner, heat on top of stove over medium high heat for about 5 minutes until the oil is bubbly and the shrimp are cooked.
    5. 5
      If dish can not be used directly on the burner, place under the broiler in the oven and broil until the oil is bubbly and the shrimp are cooked (about 5 minutes after the oil starts to bubble) Do not overcook as the shrimp will become tough.

      This is a grand recipe. Most delicious. I eliminated the jalapeno peppers and used Hungarian Paprika (hot). It was hot enough for us. I also finished it off with some very dry Sherry.. DELISH!!!!!
