Lose the leftovers: Hot pepper shrimp

Hot, spicy shrimp with lots of garlic is popular as tapas. It's normally served on its own, but by adding thick country bread and a quick salad, it becomes an entire meal. Belgium endive, sometimes called chicory, is a small, compact head of lettuce that is creamy white. It has tightly packed leaves and can be cleaned by wiping the outer leaves with a damp paper towel. The leaves will turn brown if soaked in water.
