Rule No. 45: Tame Garlic with an Acid Touch

Mexican Shrimp in Garlic Sauce (Camarones al Mojo de Ajo)

Mexican Shrimp in Garlic Sauce (Camarones al Mojo de Ajo)

There are many versions of this coastal Mexican dish, but its defining characteristics are a bold use of garlic and a bright citrus flavor. Though traditional recipes may require roasting or slow-cooking whole heads of garlic, we first mellow the allium’s pungency by steeping it in lime juice for a few minutes. We then coax out its sweet, nutty notes by gently pan-frying it in a little oil. A knob of butter—also traditional—tossed in at the end balances the garlic and lime and creates a silky sauce that clings lightly to the shrimp. Rice is a classic accompaniment, but crusty bread is delicious, too.
