– Spicy Garlic Paprika Shrimp with Chunky Tomatoes –
These Spicy Garlic Paprika Shrimp with Chunky Tomatoes are seriously over-the-top good. Loaded with so many Spanish flavors, beyond easy to make and done in 20 minutes. This is Spanish tapas at its best. I like to serve these shrimp next to a crusty baguette to mop up all that garlicky tomato sauce.
As much as I love these shrimp as an appetizer, you can always pour these shrimp over some pasta for an incredible dish. The secret to this recipe is the sweet smoked Spanish paprika and the hot smoked Spanish paprika. This is what gives this dish that beautiful spicy flavor and that smoky Spanish touch.
– How to Perfectly Cook Shrimp Everytime –
There is nothing worst that over-cooked shrimp, they have a rubbery texture and the flavor is long gone. The secret is to sear your shrimp on a medium-high heat for 1 minute per side. Once they´re done remove them from the pan and set aside. After coooking the rest of the ingredients you add the shrimps back into the pan to incorporate all the flavors and serve.
Either way you slice it, this shrimp dish is packed with flavors and will impress any seafood lover. Watch the video below on how to make these Spicy Garlic Paprika Shrimp or check out the recipe card below which you can print. Salud!
