Miami could be considered the capital city of South America and the Caribbean basin. The food style is just as diverse and complex. Here is a Miami-inspired surf and turf duo to get you in a Miami state of mind. Serves 4-6 persons.

Ingredients

1/2 cup olive oil

2 large minced onions

8 slivered garlic cloves

6 slivered jalapeño or serrano chilies

2 lbs. U-15-sized Mexican or Ecuadorean white ocean-caught shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 tsp. salt

1 tbs. freshly ground black pepper

2 tbs. mayonnaise


Directions

Heat oil over medium heat until it seems to be rippling.

Add the onion and garlic and lightly color for 3 minutes.

Add chilies and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Add shrimp, salt and pepper, cooking for another 3 minutes or so to cook the shrimp through.
