Shrimp Pil Pil

Rated as 4.54 out of 5 Stars

"This is a wonderful dish that I had while on the coast of Spain. It should be enjoyed with a good white wine or sangria, and warm crusty bread. I could not find a recipe that came close to what I had in Spain so I came up with this recipe myself. It is a big hit with family and friends. Enjoy. This can be made ahead of time and the recipe can doubled."

Nice tasty and easy recipe. Now one of our shrimp standby recipes...

Love this recipe. Quick and full of garlic deliciousness! If you're not gluten-free, make sure to have a baguette on hand to dunk in the remaining sauce.
