Shrimp Pil Pil

Recipe by  

"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."

Directions

  1. Melt the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and cayenne pepper, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Increase the heat to high, and add the shrimp and white wine. Bring to a boil, and cook until the shrimp are no longer transparent in the center, about 3 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and sweet paprika before serving.

I am from Spain and Pil Pil in dishes mostly means having parsley. You could just add a tbs of chopped fresh parsley, to see if it's closer to what you enjoyed there.

I would cut the garlic in half next time. I did not have sweet paprika, only regular paprika. I didn't know if this was the same thing so I was afraid to put in 3 whole tablespoons of it. I used a 1/4 tsp of paprika. It made a nice little sauce to add over fettucine. One kid liked it, one definitely did not (too spicy) and I'm sitting on the fence.

Love this dish! It is so easy. I like to make extra sauce and serve it over angel hair pasta or rice. I didn't have cayenne pepper on hand but a few dashes of hot sauce (like Frank's) and some crushed red pepper are good alternatives.
