1 tbsp garlic infused oil
12 large raw shrimp
½ tbsp smoked Spanish paprika (sweet or hot, whichever you prefer)
1 tsp cumin seeds, toased and ground
couple of oregano
sprigs, leaves finely chopped, or 1⁄2 tsp dried
juice and zest of 1 large lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
You will also need:
12 mini wooden skewers
Soak the skewers in a bowl of water for 10 mins. Meanwhile, peel the shrimp, leaving the tails intact, and devein.
To do this, run a sharp knife down the back, making a tiny incision just enough to remove the visible black vein. Wash the shrimp and pat dry with kitchen paper.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the paprika, garlic infused oil, cumin, oregano, lemon zest and 1 tbsp olive oil.
Add the shrimp and leave to marinate for 15 mins at room temperature. Then skewer a shrimp onto each stick.
Heat the remaining oil in a roomy frying pan and fry the shrimp for 3-4 mins, turning halfway through until just cooked.
You may need to do this in batches. Season, squeeze over some lemon juice and serve.
