Serve this as a main dish or present as an appetizer. From the Spring 2004 edition of Eating Well Magazine, who says, "This Spanish-inspired saute is a lesson in simplicity!" Very simple shrimp dish. Hope you enjoy it!

Hello Bev, what a lovely dinner we had! We followed your recipe as was posted and it was great! I worry about the amount of heat I can tolerate but this was just perfect! We served it with plain brown rice and asparagus, what a treat! We used the jumbo shrimp instead of the smaller size. Thanks so much for posting, Diane :=)
