Expert Tips

I recommend using fresh shrimp, but frozen shrimp will work well, too.

I consider Spanish cuisine as one of my favorites. It’s easy to see it’s grand influence in Latin American cuisine. Camarones al ajillo or Spanish-style garlic shrimp, is one if the easiest dishes you can prepare. It requires few ingredients and takes very little time to prepare; and the final result is an authentic deleite!

Directions

  • 1 Peel and clean the shrimp well. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and sauté the garlic slices with the chili pepper.
  • 2 When the garlic begins to turn golden, add the shrimp.
  • 3 Stir and incorporate all the ingredients well. Continue cooking until the shrimp turn pink in color.
  • 4 Season with salt to taste.
  • 5 When ready to serve, sprinkle with the diced parsley.
