“This recipe is from Spain. Sherry or lemon juice is not always used, but either one adds a nice contrast to the richness of the oil and garlic. You can easily substitute squid or scallops for the shrimp.” - by MMZEHER

I served this alongside a tossed green salad which made for a lovely, fresh, light but deliciously satisfying meal."
"A terrific tapas. Quick, easy, delicious, using only a few ingredients that work beautifully together. Drank a Spanish white wine from the Basque region, Xarmant Txakoli. It's a fresh, bright, lowish ..." See morealcohol white that's slightly effervescent. A great complement for this. "
