This super easy and flavorful fish dish was inspired by my travel to San Sabastian (Basque Country) where we enjoyed so many seafood pintxos like this one. This year, I will be serving this dish as an appetizer for Christmas Eve's Feast of the Seven Fishes.
You are welcome to use shelled shrimp, however leaving the shells on adds a ton of flavor. —erekavetrini
