Tapas Party Recipe Garlic Shrimp2.jpg
PREP TIME: 25 minutes.
1 lb shrimp, 20 to 25 count to a pound
5 large cloves of garlic, finely minced
1 tsp sweet Spanish paprika
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2-3 oz of dry sherry
3 TBSP virgin olive oil
3 tsp chopped fresh parsley
1 lemon for juice
1 Baguette

In a sauté pan, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes.  Sauté for about one minute or until they begin to brown. Watch carefully, so the garlic doesn't burn.

Raise the heat to medium high and add  shrimp, lemon juice, sherry and paprika. Stir briskly and sauté, until the shrimp turn pink and curl – about 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and transfer shrimp with oil and sauce to a warm cazuela or tapas plate. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with parsley.

Serve with baguette.
