Residents of Sao Paulo call themselves Paulistas and this simple shrimp dish is a regional favorite. Traditionally, the shrimp are cooked in their shells; however, we've removed them to make for easier eating.

ingredients

  • 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

directions

Place the shrimp in a medium nonreactive bowl and toss with the lime juice, 1/4 cup cilantro, half the garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, marinade and remaining garlic; cook until the shrimp are just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat; add the remaining 1/4 cup cilantro, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper. Toss to combine.
