Shrimp Scampi Baja Style "Camarones al mojo de ajo"


1 lb Medium sized shrimp (devined/shell off and tail off) -it's roughly about 25 -30 shrimps-
1/4 Medium sized yellow onion diced
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup of chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp butter or margarine

Fresh chopped Cilantro, using Mezzaluna knife


1.- Place a medium sized skillet on medium heat, roughly about 2 minutes. Meanwhile rinse shrimp under cool water.

2.- Add butter, garlic and onion to the skillet and saute for 1 minute. Add shrimp and mix all ingredients frequently as if stir frying.

3.- Add cilantro and continue to cook on medium to low heat, shrimp should turn pink when thoroughly cooked. Shrimp is ready to enjoy after about 8 minutes.

*Serve with a key lime wedge to squeeze the juice on the shrimp to give it an extra kick!

Buen Provecho! (Bon apetit!)

You can enjoy this dish with a side of the Mexican Rice recipe you have previously posted and a garden salad. These 2 sides are the perfect combination for the Shrimp!
