During my last summer vacation in Madrid, Spain, I purchase Pimenton de la Vera Agridulce or bittersweet and I could not wait to try it out.  In Amsterdam, with my wonderful friend Eliane, chef and  owner of  Born to Taste, she had a recipe on hand for me to put my Pimenton to good use.

When we prepared it with Elaine, we made it sous-vide. The taste was out of this world. Last night not having time to set up my sous-vide, I decided to give it a try on the stove top. Delicious.  The softness and the great flavor of the two paprikas, the sweetness of the Spanish blended with the smoked paprika, with the cream sherry and lots of pepper on the shrimps, the lemon squeezed over it, rendered a fabulous dish that was devoured.

The best part, ready in less than 20 minutes.
