I’m so obsessed with this dish you don’t even know! I have always been a shrimp lover but when you throw in lots of spice, garlic and cilantro I’m 100% on board.

I’m going to be honest. I ate this shrimp as is and then used fresh bread to soak up all the spicy juice. Legit. Straight up legit.

Plus, because I teamed up with Spectrum® Organic to showcase their delicious oils I used their Organic Cayenne Pepper Olive Oil. Which yes, is spicy. And yes, is crazy delicious! I actually sautéed the shrimp in the oil and after it was cooked I drizzled just a little more over the top because – DELICIOUS and SPICY!

Both are my jam.

I based this recipe on a few dishes I recently had in Portugal and it turned out beyond perfect. I hate to even admit this but between the 2 pounds of shrimp in this dish, I ate 1 pound and my husband ate the other.

Worth it!
