Hispanic heritage is something to celebrate. Hispanics have made numerous contributions in all walks of life, be it science, art, culture, or even cuisine. Hispanic cuisine is beloved the world over, but it doesn't take a cook or chef of Hispanic descent to bring even the most delicious dishes into their own kitchens. Whether you're of Hispanic descent or someone who simply loves a good meal, the following recipe for "Flat-Grilled Shrimp With Pimenton and Shaved Marcona Almonds" from James Campbell Caruso's "Espana: Exploring the Flavors of Spain" (Gibbs Smith) is a great way to celebrate Hispanics and all of their contributions to the world.

Flat-Grilled Shrimp With Pimenton and Shaved Marcona Almonds

Serves 6

1/2 cup olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

2 teaspoons sea salt

24 medium-large shrimp (about 1 pound), in the shell with heads intact

10 Marcona almonds

In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice and salt until well blended. Heat a plancha, grill or cast-iron skillet to high heat. Toss the shrimp in the oil-lemon mixture.

Working in batches, grill the shrimp in a single layer without crowding. Sear for 1 minute. Decrease the heat to medium and continue cooking for 1 minute longer. Turn the shrimp, increase the heat to high and sear for 2 more minutes, or until shrimp are golden. Keep the shrimp warm on an ovenproof platter in a low oven. Cook the rest of the shrimp in the same way.

When all the shrimp are cooked, arrange on a platter and serve immediately. Using a microplane or fine cheese grater, grind the almonds over the shrimp and let the almond dust sprinkle down. PC139456
