Recipes of shrimp with garlic are derived from the Spanish dish known as "gambas al ajillo" or from the Mexican dish called "camarones al mojo de ajo". The dish is often accompanied with rice.
15 cloves of garlic, minced
1 lb shrimp, shelled
1 Tbsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 jalapeño pepper sliced
Make a marinade with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 5 minced garlic cloves, salt, pepper and vinegar. Marinate the shrimp for 30 minutes.
You can start cooking the rice while the shrimp marinates so that everything will be ready at the same time. Make your rice more interesting by mixing a couple of spoonfuls of pearl barley to the rice. This adds some chewiness to the dish.
Heat a frying pan on medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Start sautéeing the remaining 10 cloves of minced garlic for about two minutes. Add the shrimp, the marinade and the jalapeño slices. Stir and cover. When the shrimp has finished cooking, add the lemon juice and stir once more. Serve with rice.
