Gambas al ajillo, garlic prawns, is a delicious classic Spanish tapas served throughout tapas bars in Spain.
During spot prawn season, we love making gambas al ajillo, or garlic prawns tapas. Vu and I fell in love with this dish after trying it at Costa Brava many years ago. It’s the dish that we never fail to order when we go to a Spanish restaurant. Flavored with plenty of garlic, a touch of cayenne and paprika, and a splash of wine, our version of gambas al ajillo will make you fall head over heels for this popular Spanish tapas.
