“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.”

This is a beautiful dish, and I enjoyed the paprika even more than I thought I would. The recipe doesn't specify, but I used what I thought was an appropriate, fragant smoked Spanish paprika which was really, really good. I used the amount called for even tho' I thought it might be too much for me, but it was just a lovely, delicate smoky flavor that also lent color to the dish. Same with the chili pepper flakes - I thought I'd be sorry using the amount called for and nearly chickened out. Glad I didn't - that, too, was just right. I prepared this with one alteration, which was simply to wait until the shrimp was nearly cooked to add the garlic, since garlic and high heat don't mix and burnt garlic is just plain nasty. In deference to the title I chose dry sherry rather than lemon, and because I welcomed the opportunity to do something other than lemon for a change. 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 alcohol white that's slightly effervescent. A great complement for this.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I served it with brown rice and roasted brussels sprouts (recipe is on this site). It didn't need as much oil as stated and I wish I had used less. I added two extra cloves of garlic and will add more red pepper the next time I make it.
