Entrees Try The World

Gambas al Pimentón

 I may not get to travel the world, but at least I can taste the world.

Obviously I love to cook, so I was excited to learn that there was a way to cook and try foods from around the world. Now it is a bit pricey, but it is so worth it. The first box I received was from Spain. Looking through all the delicious recipes, this one stood out to me. I am a shrimp lover and could not wait to try this recipe. It was very simple and very flavorful. 

Take a look into what I got in the box!

Even though you may not have a Try The World box, you can still make this dish with the ingredients provided! So, if you want to taste the world like I do, try this recipe and let me know what you think!
