Easy and simply delicious! All the flavors are perfectly balanced. For sure, a go-to recipe.
What a lovely recipe Irmgard. I've never been to spain, but enjoyed these shrimp very much. What a lovely bunch of flavors. So well balanced you could taste all the different ingredients. Even my picky dh enjoyed them. Loved the heat from the shrimps, they were excellent served over simple pasta. I did indeed sop up all the juices with my portugese bread. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
Very nice but it is not "Spanish garlic shrimp". To me it seems more like "Spanish garlic shrimp" with other stuff thrown in, which, don't get me wrong, is delicious! I'm wondering if maybe this recipe comes from a region in Spain I have not ordered garlic shrimp in yet, though. That could be the case. But I've ordered garlic shrimp in a lot of Spanish places!
When I am in Spain and go out for tapas ("appetizers") I order garlic shrimp. I've been making the dish at home for years and it is so easy. If anyone wants to try the "Spanish from Spain" kind of garlic shrimp, it's pretty simple: use garlic, extra virgin olive oil, and shrimp (of course!) and leave out the other ingredients. Serve with crusty bread and make sure you sop up the garlic-yummy-olive oil with your bread. Yes, cook the shrimp and garlic in enough oil so you can sop with your bread!
Sometimes I can't decide if I like the garlic shrimp or the oil sopping more!
Easy to make and so very delicious!! Being faint of heart, I didn't add the red pepper
It is a great recipe! I added bow pasta to it and top it with grated parmesan-asiago cheese. My favorite fruity house salad and some wine completed the meal. Ummmm! Thanks for sharing. I will make it again.
These make good shrimp tacos. Thank you for the recipe.
These were delicious. I think I overcooked them a bit, not being an experienced shrimp cooker (this was my first try), plus I used already peeled and deveined shrimp so that may have contributed to the doneness. I served them at my Spanish-themed book club discussion, and they were gobbled up in no time. I will definitely try them again. Thank you, Irmgard, for posting such a great recipe!
Irmgard, thanks for bringing these to Country Lady's ponderosa, they are outstanding, I will definatly be making these I really enjoyed them Edited to add: I have made these a few times now, so easy! I served them at my Daughters wedding (tripled the recipe) and they were a hit, Thanks Irmgard, I needed something to make ahead and serve at room temp, this was perfect!
Nice and spicy :)
