One Pot Garlic Shrimp Pasta

I bought a pack of Pil Pil spice condiment in Malaga , Spain 2 months ago and have been using it quite often. I don't exactly know what's in it but it goes wonderfully well with seafoods and chicken. It's garlicky and a bit spicy . This pasta recipe is just one of the many dishes I've tried using this  spice. It's very simple yet deeply satisfying pasta dish which doesn't require a lot of washing. Lastly, only a handful of ingredients is all you need. An absolute keeper!

Pil Pil spice is also available in Amazon.


250 g pasta , cooked according to packages instruction
400 g shrimps
1 tbsp. Pil Pil spice
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup good quality olive oil
250 g cherry tomatoes, washed and keep whole
1 tsp. dried sage
Parmesan cheese, as much as you want!
a  handful of parley
salt and pepper to taste

Got 15 minutes ? Get a wide pot, pan  or even a wok and try this out!

Cook your spaghetti in salt water. Drain in a colander and set aside.

Put you pan, pot or wok back in the stove. Pat dry using a paper towel, heat olive oil in it and add the Pil Pil spice. If you can not find this condiment anywhere, just use mix smoked paprika powder and some chili powder.

Add the minced garlic. Sauté for 3 minutes.

Dump peeled, cleaned, deveined shrimps into the pot. Stir, stir  and stir until each piece is slathered in   the flavourful oil.

Next add the tomatoes. Please keep it whole. These are small bombs of flavour that burst in your palate in every mouthful. Cook  for about 5 minutes.

Add your cooked spaghetti into the pot. Carefully mix everything until .

Add your Parmesan cheese, season with salt and pepper, garnish with chopped parsley and well, that's about it! Quick and easy, like I said!
