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!
