1/2 cup pure olive oil

8 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced paper thin

Kosher salt

1 cup pure olive oil

6 chile de arbol

Kosher salt 

6 cloves chopped fresh garlic

1/2 cup Red Chile Oil

1 1/2 tablespoons ancho chili powder

Salt 

2 tablespoons freshly chopped thyme leaves

Directions

  1. For the Toasted Garlic Chips:

  7. Place the shrimp in a large oven proof casserole (cazuela), pour the red chile oil over them and season the shrimp with the ancho chili powder and salt. Roast in the oven until pink and just cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes for small shrimp, 6 to 7 minutes for medium.
  8. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the chopped thyme and Toasted Garlic Chips. Serve immediately with lots of crusty French bread.
