This is a Spanish salad called Escabeche (which means pickled), but telling you to make pickled shrimp just sounds gross, so we will stick with the name shrimp salad!  Nothing about this is gross, it is GOOD.   Spanish inspired recipes are usually uncomplicated but loaded with tons of spicy flavors that allow a dish with simple fresh ingredients to shine with bold peppy taste.  Spanish and most Mediterranean dishes are considered healthy because of their use of fresh local produce and fish or protein and the use of healthy fats such as olive oil and avocado.

This dish is your typical beautifully uncomplicated Spanish dish.  Using fresh seafood with fresh herbs makes for a fresh and satisfying dish.  Perfect with a green salad or side of olives and cheese with a delicious wine.
You need at least 12 hours for this to marinate.   I think it would make a great appetizer to throw together on Friday if you are having people over on Saturday.  Perfect for a cookout or even a wintertime football party.
It makes a great light dinner or appetizer.

    Olive oil is great for any recipe but it is also a good source of phytochemicals and vitamins.’
