One of my favorite Spanish dishes, Gambas al Ajillo (garlic prawns) is a very quick and easy to prepare shrimp recipe that's made on the stove top. This luscious and satisfying dish consists of shrimp that are sauteed quickly in olive oil that has been laced with lots of garlic and some red chiles. It is usually offered as an appetizer or served as a "tapas" in many restaurants, but we sometimes like to accompany it with rice or pasta along with a green salad and make a full meal of it. You'll also want to have plenty of crusty bread on hand to capture the delicious pan juices from these garlicky crustaceans. Buen provecho!
