Chili Garlic Shrimp
Chili Garlic Shrimp (Gambas Al Ajillo) – the best shrimp appetizer recipe you’ll make. This Spanish chili garlic shrimp recipe is the bomb!
This past Spring break, we took little G on an amazing European trip where we started off in Barcelona, Spain. We had amazing Spanish tapas every day. We all really enjoyed Spanish food, especially the seafood dishes. One of them is certainly Gambas Al Ajillo, or Chili Garlic Shrimp. We never had a bad ones there.
Fast forward to now, I still miss the dish, because I love shrimp, and I love the explosive flavors of this concoction. So, I found the recipe I saved from Saveur magazine and adapted it to my liking. The end result was absolutely fabulous, and transported me back to the tapas restaurants in Spain instantly.
What’s so great about this chili garlic shrimp recipe is its simplicity. It’s so easy and calls for a few ingredients. With New Year just around the corner, these Gambas Al Ajillo will be perfect as a party food or appetizer. You won’t go wrong with chili and garlic shrimp, made with olive oil!
