Sizzling spanish seafood, perfect for a summer's evening or a tapas party. To butterfly the shrimp simply slit them lengthways but don't go all the way through and remove the vein.

  • 2 ounces parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes, more if you like it hot
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons dry sherry, fino is good


  1. Heat the oven to 425°F
  2. Divide the shrimp, garlic, chili, sherry and olive oil between 4 small ovenproof dishes.
  3. Cook for 6-8 minutes until pink and sizzling.
  4. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve with crusty bread.
