This Spanish tapas is a great summer accompaniment to a sparkling sangria. From a recipe book called Sangria.


  1. In a medium nonreactive bowl, whisk together the olive oil, saffron, lime juice and garlic.
  2. Add shrimp and toss to coat.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  4. Prepare grill to a medium-high heat.
  5. Push shrimp onto 4 metal skewers, allowing the excess marinade to drain off.
  6. Grill until just opaque in the center, about 2 minutes per side.
  7. Serve.

Loved it.. this was so esay and super quick once the shrimp had been cleaned. Since I only made these for myself tonight, I did cheat a little and cooked them in the mix in a fry pan, and was very pleased indeed with the result. DH who was going to an engagement that I wasn't attending looked jealously at my plate LOL. The saffrom did make the sauce rather yellow and gave it quite a pleasing but distinctive taste so if you like saffron then this recipe is for you. Please see my rating system: a excellent 4 stars. Thanks!

Loved this. Very easy to make and everything worked well together. The saffron added great flavour and colour.
