Shrimp a la Plancha with Pimentón & Garlic Oil
Shrimp with garlic is a traditional Spanish tapa; infusing the olive oil in the dish with garlic and smoked paprika, as here, adds lots of extra flavor. Make sure to have enough crusty bread on hand to soak up every last drop of oil.

This garlicky, lemony shrimp sauté with Creole seasoning is an excellent variation on scampi.
Ginger-Garlic Shrimp with Tangy Tomato Sauce
The marinade for these shrimp—a piquant mix of lemon juice, garlic, ginger, basil and parsley—would be equally good with pork or chicken. The dipping sauce is almost chutney-like with chunks of whole tomatoes; lemongrass and lime juice add tang.
Spaghetti with Shrimp, Lemon, Mint and Pecorino
