After making gambas al ajillo a while back, I had saved the leftover oil and garlic.  Tonight, I reheated the oil and garlic, then tossed in a handful of pre-shelled, frozen/thawed shrimp.  Not as good as using fresh shrimp, of course, but pretty respectable as a semi-shortcut – all ready within minutes.

Pirque Viejo Vineyard Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon (2018): for Christmas this year, we went to E-Mart together and bought secret presents for each other, maximum 30,000 won per gift; W bought me this wine, which I later discovered cost 34,000 won; anyway, it was quite nice, spiciness pairing well with the gambas al ajillo.
