Butter Chile guajillo Dried chile de arbol Shrimp Garlic cloves Limes White wine Salt
My advice is to buy shrimp that is already deveined. These are large shrimp. Use whatever size shrimp you like.
Clean the guajillo chile with a wet paper towel. Gently slice the chile, or you can dice it too.
For some spice, just add one chile de árbol. For very spicy, add two to three. For not spicy but flavorful, omit it.
Rough chop the garlic cloves and set aside until ready to use.
Choose a skillet that is large enough to fit all the ingredients for Camarones al Ajillo. Then add butter and melt it.
Add the garlic chops and chile strips, let it cook for 1-2 minutes.
Add the shrimp and all the remaining ingredients. Once the shrimp are pink, it’s ready. Turn off the heat.
You might see Camarones al Ajillo on a menu as an appetizer. Or, make it at home for a quick dinner.
