Gambas al Ajillo (Spanish Garlic Shrimp) Great Drinking Appetizer

This is actually really easy. It goes so well with wine and baguettes. An appetizer that matches perfectly with wine.
It's also perfect to serve to guests!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Shrimp (frozen shrimp are ok)
6 to 12
Olive oil
100 ml
Red chili pepper
1
Garlic, grated
1 clove (1 teaspoon grated)
Anchovy sauce (if you have it)
To taste (1 anchovy filet)
Salt and pepper, parsley
To taste

Steps

1. Heat oil, garlic and chili pepper in a pan over low heat. If you deseed the chili pepper and cut it up with scissors, the dish will be spicier.
2. When the oil is slowly bubbling, add the anchovy, salt and pepper. I used bottled anchovy sauce.
3. Add the shrimp. When they turn white, add parsley and remove from heat.
