The 15-Minute Shrimp
Spanish wine bars aren't just known for their Riojas; most also serve basic, uncomplicated food, such as omelets or platters of sliced ham and cheese.

The tomatoes morph into a bright and tangy sauce that tastes like it's been simmering for hours, but is actually ready in minutes.
