Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Cook the Spaghetti (8 ounce) per the instructions on its box. Drain and set aside.
Step 2
Put Salted Butter (6 tablespoon), Garlic (10 clove), Olive Oil (1/4 cup) in a small saucepan. Place the pan over low heat. Stir frequently, scraping the bottom of the pan as you stir. Continue cooking the garlic over very low heat.
Step 3
As soon as the garlic starts to turn brown, turn off the heat.
Step 4
Add the Salt (1/2 teaspoon), juice of one Lime (1) to the garlic and oil mixture, then stir to combine. Set aside.
Step 5
Place a separate shallow frying pan on your stove-top over medium-high heat. Pour 2 tablespoons of the garlic oil in this frying pan, then pan-fry the Large Shrimp (12) in batches. Set the shrimp aside when fully cooked.
Step 6
In the same pot that you cooked your pasta with, heat up about 2 tablespoons of the garlic oil over medium heat. Saute the Onion (1).
Step 7
When the onions turn translucent, turn off the heat. Add the pasta and all of the mojo the ajo, which is the oil and the garlic. Toss well using a pair of tongs.
Step 8
Transfer to serving plates. Top with more lime juice, Salt and Pepper (to taste) and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (to taste). Arrange the shrimp on the pasta.
Step 9
Garnish with Fresh Parsley (to taste) or Fresh Cilantro (to taste) or both. Serve and enjoy!
