    A classic tapas and probably one of the fastest dishes to pull together- just shrimp quickly cooked with lots of garlic and red pepper flakes. Huge bang for your buck in terms of flavor.

    Pg. 303... This is a terrific tapa and probably the quickest recipe I've ever cooked. I served the shrimp with the garlic and sauce on a grilled slice of Portuguese Saloio bread. Absolutely delicious. The main dish was Braised Peas and Artichokes on page 264. Great meal.
