Camarones a la Diabla is one of my favorite ways to eat shrimp – ‘Diabla’ is Spanish for she-devil. Everyone has their own version of the dish and the heat level can be adjusted according to your taste but for the most part, these shrimp need to be SPICY! My version also has smoked bacon which adds another dimension of flavor.
