This was very easy to make. I only had frozen cooked shrimp so I used that and loved it. Will be making this again in the near future. thanks for the recipe.

This was wonderful, so flavorful as is the hallmark of Spanish cuisine. Using fresh ingredients in this dish really adds a nice touch, so I am happy I used all fresh products. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Pepper Monkey. Made for the monthly tag game (for September) in the Spain forum.
