my annual splurge…my best attempt at replicating camarones al ajillo, which i fell in love with back in barra de potosi, feet in the sand, waves lapping nearby, cold beer & lime in my hand…
1 lb big beautiful uncooked georgia shrimp (none of that cheap grocery store crap – the good stuff makes all the difference)
1 head organic garlic, minced
10 serrano peppers, split/seeded/chopped (you Will regret it if you don’t seed these babies…or forget to wear gloves!)
2 limes, juiced
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp neutral oil (grapeseed, sunflower)
mix juice, salt, pepper and toss shrimp in it. let it sit 5-10 minutes. saute garlic in oils for a few minutes, then add serranos and saute another minute, then add the shrimp. saute til it’s pink & perfect!
