Spanish-Style Shrimp

  • Prep Time 15 min
  • Total Time 30 min
  • Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 pkg (1 lb/500 g) uncooked extra jumbo black tiger shrimp (16/20 count),
    thawed, peeled, tails removed
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika 2 mL
  • ½ tsp salt 2 mL
  • pinch hot pepper flakes
  • 1 cup seeded, diced tomato 250 mL
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice 30 mL
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley 30 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat cast-iron or other flame-proof skillet on grill set to high. Add oil, onion and garlic. Close lid and cook, stirring occasionally, about 7 min. until onion starts to soften.

  • Step 2

    Add shrimp, smoked paprika, salt, and hot pepper flakes. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 min. until shrimp starts to turn pink and curl. Stir in tomato; cook 1 to 2 min., or until shrimp are cooked through.

  • Step 3

    Using oven mitts, remove skillet from heat. Stir in lemon juice and parsley. Serve shrimp with cooked rice or quinoa, in lettuce cups or as a warm appetizer with crusty bread.

Tip

To clean a cast-iron skillet, hand wash and immediately dry. Rub a little oil on the insides of the skillet. This light coating will protect the pan from moisture and rust.
