salt & pepper
1 teaspoon sunflower oil
10 shrimp, peeled and deveined

Those look quite delicious! Aren't the chickpeas too dry if you eat them like this though? I always have a love/hate relationship with chickpeas. I like them in some dishes but they can also be quite dry. Maybe it's the brand I am using or did you make them fresh?

Sounds delicious-I love shrimp & chickpeas! I enjoy cooking beans from scratch, especially chickpeas, because I find the canned varieties often too al dente for my taste. Cooking from scratch really doesn't require a lot of effort, and the results are far superior.
