Shrimp al ajillo, also known as gambas al ajillo, is a popular Spanish dish that features shrimp (gambas) cooked with garlic (ajillo) and often other seasonings. The dish typically involves sautéing or pan-frying shrimp in a flavorful sauce made with garlic, olive oil, and typically, red pepper flakes and sometimes white wine or sherry for added depth of flavor. The result is a savory, aromatic, and slightly spicy shrimp dish that is commonly served with crusty bread for dipping into the flavorful garlic-infused oil. Shrimp al ajillo is a simple yet delicious tapas or appetizer in Spanish cuisine, and it’s enjoyed for its combination of fresh seafood and bold garlic and chili flavors.
