  • ■   salt
  • ■   4 oz garlic cloves

Description

•16 large, fresh shrimp •6 dried Guajillo chiles •3 tablespoons of lime juice •1 1/2 teaspoons salt •3 garlic cloves •1/4 cup finely chopped onion •1/2 cup water (to thin out the chile paste if neccesary) First, rehydrate the chiles. Then blend them with the lime juice, salt, garlic, and onion until the ingredients are well blended. Add the water a little at a time to create a "sauce"-like consistency. Devein each shrimp, if necessary. Place the prepared shrimp into a large bowl and drizzle the chile sauce over the top. Toss the shrimp in the sauce until well-coated.
