Gambas al Pil Pil

Prawns sizzled with garlic and chilli

This is an Andalucian favourite. It is normally prepared to order and served in small individual ramekins. Make sure you mop the delicious oil with some bread!

 

 

Ingredients

Makes around 4 tapas.

  • 1 cup or 200 grams of Shrimp
  • 2 small pieces (1/4 teaspoon) of dried red hot chilli pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Bread, to serve

Method

Heat the olive oil to gently fry the chopped garlic and the peppers. Add the shrimp and fry for one more minute. Remove from heat and serve sizzling hot. Don’t forget the bread for dipping! The pepper and garlic flavoured olive oil is out of this world.
