Shrimp in Mexican Garlic Sauce

Recipe by Timothy H.
READY IN: 30mins




  • In a large skillet, saute the garlic in medium-hot oil (about 300 degrees F) until light brown. Watch carefully so as not to burn. After about 6 to 8 minutes, quickly whisk in the butter and remove immediately from the fire. When all the butter has been added, the bits will become crisp.
  • Remove them with a slotted spoon and reserve the oil and butter for saut?ing the shrimp.
  • In a large skillet, heat about 2 to 3 tablespoons of the reserved oil and then saut? the shrimp for about 5 minutes. Turn over very briefly and then remove. Add more oil as necessary to saute all the shrimp. Salt to taste. Garnish with garlic bits and parsley. Serve with Mexican Rice.
  • Try brushing garlic oil over French bread, then sprinkling it with parsley and toasting it.
  • Serve this with the shrimp and accompany the dish with a lettuce and tomato salad.
