Original Recipe Serves 10


20 Mission® 6" White Corn Tortillas (10600)  
1 1/2 cups Poblano Peppers , roasted 
2 heads  Garlic , fresh, peeled 
1 1/2 tsp.  Salt  
1 1/4 cups  Lime Juice , fresh 
3 tsp. Fresh Ground Black Peppers  
9 cups  Shrimp , 26/30 size 
1/3 cup  Olive Oil , divided 
1/3 cup  Vegetable Oil , divided 
2  Limes , cut into wedges 


1.) To roast peppers, place on a hot grill or in a broiler until pepper skin blisters and becomes evenly blackened. Remove from heat and place in a plastic bag and seal to sweat peppers for 10 minutes. Remove from bag. Peel, stem and seed peppers, cut into thin strips. Set aside.

2.) In a mortar and pestle, crush 8 of the garlic cloves to a paste with the salt. Grind in the lime juice and the black pepper.

3.) Add the shrimp and toss well to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes; drain and set aside.

4.) Using the flat side of a heavy knife blade, crush the remaining garlic cloves just enough to bruise the surface without breaking apart the cloves. Set aside.

5.) Add 2 Tbs. each of the olive and vegetable oil to a medium skillet and heat over medium heat until rippling.

6.) Add the bruised garlic and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes or until golden. Mix in the chiles, sauté and set aside.

7.) To cook to order, heat 1 Tbs. remaining oils per serving. Add the drained shrimp and cook, stirring constantly, for two minutes or until shrimp turns pink. Add in the garlic-chile mixture and cook, stirring constantly, to heat, about 1 minute. Serve immediately with lime wedges and warm tortillas.
