Garlic Shrimp with Mushrooms | CRAZY Delicious ONE-PAN Tapas Recipe

These Garlic Shrimp with Mushrooms, known as Gambas al Ajillo con Champiñones, are perfect as a tapas appetizer or even as a main course next to a garden salad. Either way, this dish is filled with honest flavors, easy to make and all done in about 20 minutes.

Garlic Shrimp with Mushrooms
For this recipe, I used typical white mushrooms, which are also known as button mushrooms. You can also use baby bellas if you like. Just make sure to give the mushrooms a quick rinse under water and then pat them dry, making sure to remove any excess dirt.

Garlic Shrimp with Mushrooms
For the shrimp, I used red Argentinian shrimp I bought frozen and thawed out and already peeled and deveined. However, you can use any type of shrimp you like. Either way, make sure to cook the shrimp for about 1 minute per side or until just done. If you overcook the shrimp, they get a rubbery texture.

Author Albert Bevia @ Spain on a Fork


  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 60 ml
  • 1 lbs white mushrooms (washed & patted dry) 450 grams
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 lbs raw jumbo shrimp (peeled & deveined) 225 grams
  • 1/2 tsp hot smoked Spanish paprika 1.25 grams
  • handful fresh parsley
  • sea salt & black pepper


  1. Cut the mushrooms into 1 cm thick slices (a little over a 1/4 inch), thinly slice 4 cloves garlic and roughly chop the parsley

  2. Heat a large fry pan with a medium heat and add in 2 tbsp (30 ml) extra virgin olive oil

  3. After a couple of minutes, add in the sliced garlic, mix continuously, after 20 to 30 seconds and the garlic is fragrant, add in the sliced mushrooms, mix together, then mix every 1 to 2 minutes

  4. In the meantime, add the shrimp over some paper towels and pat dry, then season with sea salt & black pepper, roughly chop 4 cloves of garlic

  5. After cooking the mushrooms for 7 to 8 minutes and you can see there's liquid in the pan (water released from the mushrooms), raise it to a high heat, go for another 3 minutes or until most of the liquid has been cooked off, then add in 2 tbsp (8 grams) of the chopped parsley and season with sea salt & black pepper, mix together, then transfer into a large serving dish

  6. Using the same pan with the same heat, add in another 2 tbsp (30 ml) extra virgin olive oil, immediately add in the shrimp, all in a single layer, cook for 1 minute per side or until cooked through, then add in the chopped garlic and hot smoked paprika, mix together until well mixed, then remove from the heat

  7. Add the shrimp over the mushrooms and garnish with fresh parsley, enjoy!
