Mojo de ajo is like a garlic gravy that infuses the grilled shrimp with fantastically zesty flavor. This dish employs a great trick many cooks don't know: using skillets on the grill, which gives fiery grilled flavor to simmered components like the garlic and onion.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Combine oil, onion, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and garlic in a medium stainless steel skillet. Place skillet on grill; cover and grill 10 minutes or until garlic is soft and golden brown. Remove pan from grill; stir in parsley and juice. Return pan to the grill; cover and grill 2 minutes.

Step 3

Add shrimp to grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes or until grill marks appear, turning after 2 minutes. Remove shrimp from grill, and place in pan; toss to coat with juice mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.

Step 4

Arrange shrimp and mojo on a platter; sprinkle with serrano slices.
