DIRECTIONS

  • Combine tomatillos, chiles, 4 garlic cloves, water, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a 4-quart saucepan and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until tomatillos are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. (Chiles will not be tender.)
  • While tomatillos are simmering, peel and devein shrimp. Rinse and pat dry, then toss with 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • Working in batches if necessary, purée tomatillo mixture, oil, and cilantro in a blender until smooth (use caution when blending hot liquids).
  • Force through a medium-mesh sieve into a bowl, pressing hard on and then discarding solids.
  • Heat butter in a deep 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until foam subsides, then add remaining 4 garlic cloves, 2 cups tomatillo sauce, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and bring to a simmer.
  • Add shrimp and simmer, stirring, 2 minutes. Add remaining sauce and simmer, stirring, until shrimp are just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.
