    French Tart's Note:

    Sizzling Spanish seafood, perfect for a summer's evening or a tapas party. This simple, baked dish is one of our favourites, great with a glass of ice-cold Fino. You can serve these in the middle of the table - in a large, attractive earthenware dish or in individual bowls. Provide plenty of paper napkins for fingers and faces!! Or, finger bowls with iced lemon water would be a nice idea. Tactile food at its best!

      I don't think I'm ever going to order shrimp in garlic sauce at a restaurant again. I can't imagine it being more delicious than this one. Thank you for making me look like a professional chef for a day :-)

      I've had this twice this month now, once as a light lunch and then again served over rice, for a dinner dish. And it was a hit with my family both times. It was positively delicious. I liked the addition of the dry sherry, which I think really contributed a lot to the overall flavor sensation of this dish. Thanks, French Tart.

      Love this recipe. My hubby found it since we're into tapas. Prepared this for a party and it was a hit. Used medium sized prawns and didn't butterfly them. Also used red pepper flakes in lieu of chili flakes. Used minced garlic instead of sliced garlic- I modified the recipe to use what I had on hand in the pantry. This recipe is easy, yummy, and a keeper. Great job French Tart!
