Shrimp In Fiery Hot Garlic Butter

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Bergy

Simple recipe but not for the weak hearted. Surprisingly the amount of chile & garlic does not detract from the flavor of the shrimp. I recommend that you make your own bolillos to go with the shrimp to soak up the sauce. Serve with green salad & noodles. Garnish the shrimp with the green onions
