This Spanish shrimp with chickpeas recipe is one of my favorite dishes I learned in culinary school. I hope you enjoy this delicious combination too!
One of the best things I made last year while in culinary school in Barcelona was a classic Spanish dish called garbanzos con cigalas. This mouth-watering recipe takes the humble chickpea to a whole other level by adding the rich flavor of cigalas (scampi or Norway Lobster) to the dish. Since scampi can be hard to come by depending on where you’re located, I’ve written the recipe using jumbo shrimp. But if you happen to have scampi on hand, please do substitute them!
