Camarones al ajillo

"Camarones al Ajillo" is my personal favorite seafood dish. Sandy's seafood restaurant in Luquillo serves the most succulent "Ajillo" I have eaten on the Island. This recipe is my version of Sandy’s Shrimp in Garlic Butter. The Ajillo portion of the recipe can be used to make other seafood dishes such as "Chillo al Ajillo," which when translated, equates to "Red Snapper in Garlic Butter." Tostones, Mofongo, or Arañas go well with this dish.
