  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 rounded teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 10 cup baby salad greens
  • Shrimp
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika

  1. 1. For Tapas Spread: Arrange all tapas ingredients on a large platter.
  2. 2. For Salad: Whisk together vinegar, honey, and mustard in a small bowl. Whisk in olive oil, and add salt and pepper; set aside. (Dress greens before serving.)
  3. 3. For Shrimp: Toss the shrimp with 3/4 teaspoon salt; set aside for 10 minutes. Warm the olive oil in a large pan, and gently sauté garlic over medium-low heat for 3 minutes or until fragrant and beginning to color. Add shrimp, remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt, crushed red pepper, and smoked paprika; cook over medium heat, turning the shrimp occasionally, for about 3 minutes or until just cooked through. Remove shrimp from pan with a slotted spoon. Add sherry to pan, raise heat to high, and reduce liquid (about 2–3 minutes). Add lemon juice, return shrimp to pan, and toss gently; sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately.
