    kiwidutch's Note:

    In Spanish tavernas, these shrimp; fragrant with garlic and olive oil; are brought to the table sizzling in a little metal pan. Have plenty of bread on hand to sop up the delicious pan juices. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.

      Big flavours from a few ingredients-sometimes we overlook the simplest of things!!
      We love dishes like this...in fact I make something very similar with fresh chilies,garlic and lashings of ginger.
      This was a nice change of pace...and yes..I know everybody else has said it, but you really do need some lovely crusty bread for those juices!!

      This was quite tasty, but even though I used garlic infused oil in addition to the garlic cloves, I thought it didn't taste very garlicky. I would probably add some garlic salt to the pan next time, and there will definitely be a next time!
