Chef Lepke, who has been a contestant on "Chopped". I don't get cable, so I have never watched the show, but anyway...
Here's my basic recipe.
Camarones a la Barbara
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
butter and olive oil for saute
3 tablespoons spices or herbs of your choice. I used a combination of cumin, tumeric, ginger, paprika.
salt and pepper to taste
6 cloves garlic, chopped finely
1 cup tomatoes with juice (canned are fine)
Warm butter and olive oil, then saute garlic until golden. Put in shrimp. Cook on medium high for a short period. Take shrimp out, and put in a bowl. Put other ingredients in and reduce the sauce. Return shrimp to warm, then serve over pasta, rice, or with bread. That's it!
