Expert Tips

For a seafood dish, you can add octopus and/or fish fillets to the shrimp.

Fresh shrimp cooked in onion, garlic and strips of ancho pepper combine beautifully in a tasty stir-fry. Dry ancho pepper isn't very spicy, but it does add a bit of earthy flavor that pairs wonderfully with the shrimp. What I love most about this shrimp stir-fry, besides the delicious flavor, is that is super quick and easy to prepare. If you're like me and are always looking for new ways to use shrimp, then you'll love this recipe and so will your family.

You can make the dish a little spicier with mashed chile de árbol.

Directions

  • 1 Use your kitchen scissors or a sharp knife to cut the dry pepper into long and thin strips.
  • 2 Heat the olive oil in a large pot and cook over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion in the oil for 2-3 minutes.
  • 3 Add the garlic, shrimp and the strips of pepper. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Sauté, stirring from time to time for 5 to 8 minutes, until the shrimp are completely cooked, remove from the heat.
  • 4 Cover the pot and let sit for 5 more minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite rice. Enjoy!
