Shrimps or Prawns a Moho de Aho (spanish Garlic Shrimp)

Shrimps or Prawns a Moho de Aho (spanish Garlic Shrimp)


  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 1 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large leek finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper finely chopped
  • 2 pounds of fresh shelled shrimp
  • 1 bay leaf
  • dash allspice
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas
  • salt, black and red pepper flakes
  • a pinch of saffron is optional


Use scissors to butterfly the raw shrimp and remove the black vein. Put oil in the pan with garlic, leek, red bell pepper, peas and spices. Saute until the leeks and peppers begin to brown and excess water boils out of the pan. Add dry shrimp and treat them as if you are deep frying them in the vegetables and oil - they are not breaded so they won't brown very much. It looks like a grease slick when it's done. Serve it with oil in a wide shallow bowl per person. Serve with long grain rice or French bread slices for dipping in the oil.
