Garlic Shrimp with Pickled Peppers

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST

Guindilla peppers add a subtle heat to this basque-inspired dish. These pickled peppers are sometimes sold at specialty food stores; if you can't find guindilla peppers, you can substitute Italian pepperoncini or other small, moderately hot pickled green peppers.

  1. 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  3. 1/4 cup sliced guindilla peppers
  4. 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  5. 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  6. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  7. Salt
  8. Crusty bread, for serving
  1. Heat the extra-virgin olive oil in a large heavy skillet until shimmering. Add the shrimp and fry over moderate heat, turning once, until bright pink, about 3 minutes. While gently shaking the skillet, add the guindilla peppers, garlic and parsley. Sprinkle the flour over the shrimp and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until a light sauce forms, about 3 minutes longer. Season with salt. Spoon the shrimp and sauce onto 4 small plates and serve with crusty bread.

Suggested Pairing

A light, fresh white from Rioja or the Basque region will counter the spiciness of this simple dish without overpowering the flavors.
