Spanish-Style Garlic Shrimp

Small plates, called tapas or pinchos in Spain, are ideal for feeding a crowd. Not only do they add variety to any party, they’re elegant without the fuss. Because of that, you’re able to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with your guests.

With this garlicky shrimp dish you’ll quickly be transported to the sundrenched coast of Ibiza. Whether you top a baguette slice with shrimp, or use the bread to soak up the flavorful oil, or both, you’ll be hard-pressed to stop after eating just one. Of course, you can also just grab a handful of toothpicks to spear as many shrimp as you like, the way you’d do it if you were in Spain.

This dish is meant to be an appetizer. But, it can easily be served as an entrée over rice. All you need is a quick salad and a glass of sherry to be on your way to a wonderful Spanish meal.

Test Kitchen Tip

Shrimp counts represent how many shrimp are in one pound.


Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium until shimmering. Add garlic, pepper flakes, and paprika; sauté until garlic just begins to brown, about 1 minute. Increase heat to medium-high.

Add shrimp and sherry to pan. Cook shrimp, stirring frequently, until cooked through, 23 minutes, then stir in vinegar and season with salt.

Garnish shrimp with parsley; serve with baguette slices.


Adding a little sherry vinegar at the end lends a nice hit of brightness to the dish.
