Tapas: Garlicky Shrimp with Olive Oil (Gambas al Ajillo)

Garlicky Shrimp with Olive Oil (Gambas al Ajillo)

This recipe comes from La Casa del Abuelo, a nearly century-old taberna in Madrid, via Food and Wine.  Gambas al Ajillo is a classic tapas dish, and very quick and easy.  This took me all of 15 minutes to make, including food prep.  I reduced the quantities used in the recipe by about 2/3, but otherwise followed the directions exactly.  I served this with Herb and Antipasti Salad with Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette and lots of crusty bread to soak up the garlic oil.

Most wine pairings I checked out for Gambas al Ajillo suggested white or sparkling wine, but oh the horror, I felt like drinking red.  At least it was from the right country.  I opened a Jumilla, 1999 Mature Reserva Monastrell-Tempranillo 1999, from Bodegas San Dionisio in the Castilla-La Mancha region of Spain (yes, the home of Don Quijote).  And this probably was a quixotic choice to go with shrimp.  The best way to describe this wine was very ripe and plummy.  It really might be a better match for meats, but I enjoyed it anyway.  Just don’t call me Sancho Panza.
