Cook the paprika in the oven until the skin will become brown (burnt a bit).

Put the paprika in a close plastic bag, as you put it on a close plastic bag you will notice the burnt part is easy to remove.

After a few minute, slowly remove the burnt skin of the paprika and throw it away. Leave the inside part of it.

Prepare a pan. Sauté garlic and spicy pepper with a bit of olive oil. Wait until it becomes brown.

Add the sambas (shrimp), paprika, 8 pieces of cherry tomatoes and parsley. Wait until it is cooked.
