Gambas Al Ajillo Garlic Shrimp Tapas

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Bergy

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

Wonderful flavour!! nice zing from the jalapeno. Sooo quick and easy, I used canned pickled jalapeno and served it in the pan with baguette slices on the side. I did cut back on the olive oil, used about half the amount called for, it worked fine but probably would have been juicier with more oil. Will definately make this again, thanks for sharing a keeper Bergy!!
