Cook the Spaghetti (8 oz) per the instructions on its box. Drain and set aside.
Step 2
Put Salted Butter (1/3 cup) , Garlic (10 cloves) , 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.

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.
