Today's favorite ingredient


I found this in the North End, at Salumeria Italiana, but I've seen it in other places. Pretty much I have been putting it in everything lately.

So far my favorite recipe is to put a couple of tablespoons of olive oil in a heavy skillet with a few minced cloves of garlic, some red pepper flakes, and a big pinch of smoked paprika. Get the oil nice and hot and throw in a half dozen cleaned shrimp. Let it sizzle a bit and turn pink, then turn the shrimp.

Just as they are about done I throw in a can of chopped tomatoes, or some cooked broccoli, or even cauliflower. Or you could have it as is with a bit of bread to soak up the garlicky oil.

Very delicious.
