Gambas al Ajillo

I saw this recipe on An Olive Tree Grows in Manhattan, a blog with so many unique yummy sounding dishes. It is simple but seems authentic and was fabulouso.

Please go to the link to read the details on this dish! Basically, it is shrimp wiht olive oil, lots of garlic, and some red pepper flakes, just enough for a little kick that even I can handle! The recipe is so simlpe it almost seems silly to write it out, but its so yummy - try it!! Great with bread to soak up the oil (instead of serving break with butter or oil)

3/4 lb of medium sized shrimp, peeled

1/4 cup olive oil

8 cloves garlic, minced (I used crushed since I dont have the patience to mince 8 cloves!)

2 tsp red pepper flake


1. Heat olive oil in a medium pan. Add garlic, shrimp, and red pepper flake. Salt to taste. Mix to combine.

2. When the shrimp are almost completely opaque, flip them over and cook until done. Enjoy!
