Ingredients

3 medium serrano chiles

4 medium cloves garlic

1 tablespoon paprika

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

1 1/2 pounds uncooked, deveined, and peeled shrimp, tails left on (about 40)

Salt

1/3 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Lime wedges, for serving

Directions

  2. Place chiles on a baking sheet and roast until blackened and soft, about 10 to 15 minutes. Trim chiles and remove seeds.
