Spanish Garlic Prawns #dinner #shrimp

Gambas al ajillo is one of the most great Spanish tapas, and in light of current circumstances. Huge, sweet shrimp are marinated with salt and garlic, before cooking in olive oil. The shrimp are delicate, and the tasty oil is ideal for sopping up with dried up bread, or sprinkling over rice.

In this scrumptious dish, prawns are sautéed in oil imbued with garlic and bean stew, at that point completed with a press of lemon squeeze and sprinkled with paprika and parsley. I could joyfully eat an entire bowlful all alone. What's more, the best thing is there's consistently heaps of tasty garlic and stew injected oil left to plunge your bread into even after you've eaten the prawns.

Emphatically stacked with garlic and flavors - kindly remember the new, un-buttered bread, you will require it! Regularly filled in as a course, this formula makes enough for two primary feast servings.
