Hot sizzling shrimps with the sweet aroma of caramelized garlic and sherry, are but a flash in the pan. The toasted baguette will soak up the delicious juices. It doesn’t get more sophisticated as this. Traditionally tapas foods started out and became forever growing in popularity in the world of Spain!, as a bar snack to have with your drinks. The Spanish garlic shrimp dish is ideal as a tapas food because tapas is usually the idea of small food served in bars that didn’t sit around too long. Fresh food hot or cold served quickly and eaten right away keeps the flies away.
