Spain Cooking Class: Gambas Pil Pil as a Tapas Dish

Tapas restaurants and bars abound in Spain, and the small bites of food are the perfect way to discover a lot of delicious traditional foods. The "snacks" got their start as a small dish that could be fit on the top of a wine glass.

Today, tapas are often small in size, but you'll rarely find them atop your wine! As you can discover in a Spain cooking class, tapas are served in all shapes and sizes, and are often wonderful for sharing.

One popular bite-sized dish is gambas pil pil, or prawns pil pil style, a dish that is best served sizzling. This dish is an easy one too, as it simply involves cooking the shrimp/prawns in olive oil, along with a bit of chili and a lot of garlic, for just a few minutes.

Cooking and serving this tapas dish in a ramekin will be like taking a culinary trip to Spain! Your kitchen will smell wonderful, and your tastebuds will be delighted.
