Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    12 ounces (2 medium-small round or 405 plum) ripe tomatoes, cored and finely diced
    Fresh serrano chiles, to taste (3 to 5), stemmed and finely chopped
    3 large garlic cloves, peeled amd very finely chopped
    1 small white onions, finely diced
    salt, about 1 1/4 teaspoons

    1 pound (about 24) medium-large shrimp
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    2 small avocados (optional)
    1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
    6 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Directions

Making Essential Chopped Tomato-Serrano Salsa
Mix together the tomatoes, chiles and garlic. Scoop the onions into a strainer, rinse under cold water, shake dry and add to the mixture, along with 3/4 teaspoon of the salt.

The Shrimp
Peel, leaving tail intact. Devein.
Place in a medium-sized bowl. Add 1 tablespoon lime juice, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Stir well and let marinate about 30 minutes (no longer than 1 hour). Pat shrimp completely dry.

Avocados
Cut avocados in half, remove flesh from skin and dice into 3/8-inch pieces.

Finishing the dish
Arrange all ingredients near the stove. Lightly coat 2 large (10- to 12-inch) skillets or a large heavy griddle with olive oil. Set over medium-high heat. When very hot, lay shrimp in a single uncrowded layer. When half done, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes, flip them over and divide salsa and remaining tablespoon of lime juice over all.

When the shrimp are done, use a pair of tongs to remove them to warm plates, leaving behind as much salsa as possible. If using avocados, sprinkle them over the salsa and cook, scooping and stirring, until heated through, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Scoop up the salsa and sprinkle over the shrimp. Strew generously with cilantro and serve.

  • Excellent. Add a little pineapple on the side or in the dish and you have a nice combination of "heat" and "cool". I will definitely prepare this again. - 2/11/10
