    Hot pepper shrimp, with roasted red pepper and endive salad.

Hot, spicy shrimp with lots of garlic is a popular tapas dish. By adding some thick country bread and a quick salad, it becomes an entire meal.

Belgium endive, sometimes called chicory, is a small cigar-shaped head of lettuce with tightly packed leaves.

  • 2 medium Belgium endive lettuce
  • 1/2 cup drained canned pimento peppers
  • 1 cup rinsed and drained Great Northern beans
