How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large skillet, cook the garlic in the olive oil over moderate heat until lightly browned and fragrant, about 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the garlic to a plate. Add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 7 minutes.

Step 2    

Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and add them to the skillet. Cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until nearly cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the water and cook just until evaporated. Add the cilantro leaves and butter to the skillet and stir to coat. Transfer the shrimp and mushrooms to a platter and garnish with the sliced garlic. Serve the shrimp with yellow rice and lime wedges.

Chef's Notes

If you can't get pre-butterflied shrimp, use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut down the back of each shrimp, leaving the shells intact.
