Shrimp mojo a ajo

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 \N Dozen Jumbo Shrimp; with shells
\N \N Olive Oil
\N \N Salt
4 tablespoons Butter
4 tablespoons Olive Oil
10 \N Cloves Garlic; cut in chunks
1 tablespoon Lime Juice
\N \N Fresh Cilantro; chopped/for garnish

Preheat the broiler. Butterfly the shrimp, with shells on, by cutting along inside curve and then pressing flat. Brush all over with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Broil, shells up, for 4 minutes.

Make the sauce by melting butter with oil in small pan over low heat. Add garlic and salt and gently cook, swirling pan occasionally, until garlic is golden, about 7 minutes. Swirl in lime juice and remove from heat.

Arrange shrimp, split side up, on serving plates. Spoon on garlic sauce, garnish with cilantro, and serve hot.

NOTES : This impressive Mexican dish is perfect for both the inexperienced cook and dyed-in-the-wool garlic devotee.
