Shrimp in a garlicky sauce is a classic and a classically simple Spanish tapa. It is usually cooked and presented in individual shallow earthenware casseroles, but it can just as easily be made in a larger casserole or skillet. Offer crusty bread alongside.

- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- ¼ cup olive oil
