About this recipe

If you're hoping to throw a vibrant summer barbecue, there's no better way than by whisking your guests away to sunny Spain.

We never have a bad word to say about traditional barbecue food, but if you prefer food that is altogether more delicate and refined, gambas are your answer.

By making the most of some common cupboard ingredients and tossing them together with a sprinkling of fresh lime, this sweet and spicy tapas speciality will guarantee your gathering is one to remember.
