Gambas Al Ajillo
Roasted Garlic Shrimp

I like Roasted Garlic and Shrimp together.
Making this and topping it on some Pasta
is a meal fit for the Queen or King in your family.
I like this dish, it cooks up fast using thin spaghetti.
Gambas al ajillo, or “shrimp with garlic”  is just
about one of the most popular Spanish Tapas.

2 whole heads of fresh garlic
a few drizzles of olive oil
1 onion, peeled and sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
12 frozen shrimp, 15/20 size
1 fresh lemon, sliced
salt to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut garlic heads at the tops, then
drizzle with olive oil and place on baking dish.
Slice onion and place on baking dish.
Bake uncovered for about twenty minutes,
then add shrimp onto baking dish to cook
for another 30 minutes or so until done.
Remove shrimp, peel and toss in a bowl with
roasted garlic, onion, add in sugar, vinegar and
also toss with sliced lemon, salt before serving.
