Garlic Shrimp, Gambas Al Ajillo Pinoy Style
Garlic Shrimp, Gambas Al Ajillo Pinoy Style. This recipe is based on the popular Spanish tapas or finger food. Shrimp are stir cooked with olive oil, a lot of garlic and flavoured with paprika and hot chili peppers and usually served with bread. For my Pinoy version I used butter instead of olive oil. Generally we Pinoys do not use olive oil in our kitchen so I thought why not use butter instead.

Garlic Shrimp

The dish is easy to prepare as previously mentioned the cooking method requires only the shrimp to be stir cooked with the aromatics used. It is however important the shrimp are not overcooked. Hot chili ingredients can always be adjusted to your preference. This can also be served in a sizzling plate. Here is my version of Garlic Shrimp, Gambas Al Ajillo, enjoy.


250 grams medium size shrimp, shelled
1 head garlic, minced
1-2 red chili, chopped
3-4 stalk Chinese parsley
1 tbsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 tbsp. butter

Cooking procedure:

In a frying pan melt the butter then add in the garlic, red chili and parsley, stir fry until fragrant. Add in the shrimps, paprika and chili powder, continue to stir fry for 8 to 10 minutes or until shrimps turn to bright red orange color and just cooked. Season with salt to taste. Serve immediately or serve in a sizzling plate.
