Gambas a la plancha, or grilled shrimp, is a classic Spanish tapa recipe. Whole, unpeeled shrimp are salted, then cooked quickly on a flat-iron grill.
During and after cooking, lemon juice can be squeezed on the shrimp, giving them even more flavor. What a pure and simple dish!
Gather the ingredients.
Rinse shrimp and drain. Cut the lemon in half.
Heat grill or cast-iron frying pan until very hot. Pour in 2 tablespoons olive oil and cover the cooking surface evenly with the oil.
Place shrimp on the grill or in the pan, sprinkle liberally with salt. Squeeze lemon juice directly over shrimp. Turn shrimp over and sprinkle more salt and lemon juice.
Shrimp should turn pink and shells should “brown” slightly when cooked. As soon as they are cooked, remove and place on serving platter. Garnish with lemon.
- Because the shrimp will be cooked at high heat, do not use a non-stick surface. Use a flat-iron grill or a large cast-iron frying pan for best results.
