In my early teen years, my favorite dishes where those with seafood. I was very lucky to have a best friend whose family owned an outstanding Mexican seafood joint close to my house. I obviously had dinner there twice a week! My favored dish was their mojo de ajo, which is basically butter and garlic sauté over shrimp. I now make my own mojo de ajo shrimp and love to delight with its beautifulness during the warm months of the year. Take a gander at my recipe and let me know what you think! MORE + LESS -
