Gambas Al Ajillo Garlic Shrimp Tapas

Total Time

This is a very tasty, garlic loaded Tapa. I like to use 2 fresh Jalapenos to give them a good kick If you like it milder use only one fresh or 2 canned. It is fun to take the fry pan right to the table and let everyone fixe their own. Do not skimp on the olive oil and use only a top grade oil
