Gambas al Ajillo
at the cabin
-Changchon, Seowon, Hoengseong, Gangwon, Republic of Korea-
with IZ, PJS’s family
As I mentioned a few weeks back, Gambas al Ajillo is thoroughly mainstream in Korea these days.
Cousin JS prepared gambas al ajillo as an anju. When I asked him where/how he’d learned to make it, he shrugged and said that it’s just one of those dishes that everyone does nowadays. He wasn’t even aware of its Spanish origins, assuming it to be Italian.
