Garlic Shrimp- Camarones al ajillo


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 10 peeled garlic cloves
  • 1 pound raw, peeled and deveined large shrimp
  • 4 small dried chile de arbol or your favorite dry chile
  • 1/2 cup Sherry
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper

Heat olive oil.  Add garlic and sauté for a few minutes.  Do not let it brown or the garlic will become bitter.   Add the shrimp and the chili pepper.  Cook for 2 minutes then turn the shrimp over and cook another 2 minutes.  Pour in the Sherry and cook for a few more minutes.  Be careful not to over cook the shrimp.  Add the parsley and serve.  Make sure you have some good bread to soak up the yummy sauce.
