Shrimp Paulista

Residents of Sao Paulo call themselves Paulistas and this simple shrimp dish is a regional favorite. Traditionally, the shrimp are cooked in their shells; however, we’ve removed them to make for easier eating.

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
