Doc Ford’s Yucatan Shrimp Recipe  

Doc Ford’s Yucatan Shrimp


4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 large clove garlic, minced

Juice of two large limes

1 tablespoon Indonesian sambal (sambal oelek)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 pound large, fresh, shell-on shrimp

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


In a small saucepan set over low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the garlic and cook, stirring for 2 minutes. Add remaining 3 tablespoons butter to saucepan. When it melts, stir in the lime juice, chili sauce, salt and pepper. Turn off the heat and allow the sauce to rest. Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil. Add the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes or until they are just firm and pink. Do not overcook. Drain into a colander and shake over the sink to remove excess moisture. In a large bowl, toss the shrimp and chili sauce. Sprinkle with cilantro and toss again.
