Tried to mix things up again with another unusual dish. We never eat seafood, so I got some shrimp at the store and made some garlic shrimp (camarones al mojo de ajo), which are really simple and tasty.

General recipe (as always, I have no clue how much of anything goes into my dishes):

Melt butter over low heat, add a lot of garlic.

Increase heat to medium-low, add finely diced onion, stir, and cook until the onion starts turning color.


Add shrimp, stir until coated, cook ~3 min.

Add lemon juice, salt, pepper, chili powder, and stir.

Increase heat to medium.

Every minute or so, stir, for ~5 min as the sauce reduces.

Remove the shrimp promptly.

Serve with refried beans, toasted corn tortillas, and/or lettuce.

Side of refried beans mixed with chiles and queso fresco.
I ate shrimp! Delicious!
