Baked Shrimp with Tomatillos

Ingredients serves four

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 medium onion, chopped, about 1 cup

1-2 jalapeno chiles, seeded, minced

3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 lb tomatillos/baby tomatoes chopped


1/2 cup clam juice OR 1/4 cup water*

1 lb shrimp, cleaned

1 cup Cotija queso seco cheese (can substitute feta)

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Lime juice

Black pepper

An oven-proof sauté pan or cast iron pan


1 Heat oil in the pan you will use for baking. Add the onions and jalapeños, cook for 5 minutes on medium high until the onions begin to brown. Add the garlic and cook a minute more. Add the tomatillos, reduce heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes, until the tomatillos are cooked through, but still hold their shape. Sprinkle salt over the tomatillos as they are cooking.

2 If using clam juice, add to pan, turn up the heat and reduce by half. If using water, just add the 1/4 cup of water without reducing.

3 Add the cheese and shrimp. Cook in a preheated 425°F oven for 10 minutes.

4 Remove pan from the oven. If using a pan with a handle, such as a cast iron frying pan, I recommend cooling the handle with ice for safety; it's so easy to forget that pan has just come out of the oven, and you grab the hot handle by mistake.Right before serving, mix in the cilantro and sprinkle with lime juice and freshly ground black pepper.

Yet again a wonderful recipe from the fabulous Simply Recipe site here.

All the best Jan
