The 15-Minute Shrimp
Spanish wine bars aren't just known for their Riojas; most also serve simple, uncomplicated food, such as omelets and platters of sliced ham and cheese. This garlicky shrimp belongs in that category. It starts with sautéed garlic and shallots, then you add in grape tomatoes, shrimp and white wine. The tomatoes morph into a bright and tangy sauce that tastes like it's been simmering for hours, but was actually ready in minutes.
