Simple food is the best food.

There’s a Mexican restaurant in my neighborhood that’s really good. They are authentic, make most of their food from scratch, and are therefore a bit pricey. I always order their spicy Mexican shrimp, which burns my face off because it’s made with a habanero, but I don’t even care.


I decided to recreate the recipe at home. There aren’t many ingredients, it took me actually less than 20 minutes to make the meal, and honestly I think my version was better due to the amount of butter I added.

God I love butter.


•2-3 tbsp butter

•1.5-2 cups of wild shrimp

•1 onion, sliced

•1-2 jalapenos (I of course used two), diced

•2 smalled tomatoes, diced

•2 cloves of garlic, minced

•2 tbsp of cilantro, roughly chopped


1. Melt the butter over medium high heat.

2. Add the tomatoes, jalanenos and onions. Cook until completely soft.

3. Add the shrimp and cook for about two minutes of each side.

4. Add the garlic and cilantro and give it a stir.

5. Serve with rice or cauliflower rice.
