What a super easy yet great tasting meal! Followed the recipe exactly, but also added some chili powder for a little kick. Served with Classic Saffron Rice. Made for ZWT5 Storybook challenge.
Perfect combination, I never knew how much I loved Spanish seasoning! The red pepper flakes and cilantro woke up the dish but did not overwhelm; the bay leaf made it taste different from other scampis. The inexpensive Spanish Marques de lav Villa, ~Malvasia grape~, with Toro denomination of origin, was perfect for this recipe, and also had a light, dry but pleasant taste while drinking at the table. I was generous with the garlic. Served this with delightful Warm Manchego Cheese Popovers #371154. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Florida Native! Made for ZWT5 for Spain/Portugal region.
