  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 whole poblano chilies seeded, ribs removed and roughly chopped
  • 6 whole garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1 pound 16 oz tomatillos, husked, rinsed and quartered

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the chopped chilies and 1/2 of the garlic and cook until the peppers start to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatillos and 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the tomatillos begin to break down and release some liquid, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Transfer the tomatillo sauce to your blender, purée, and set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, season them with some salt and pepper and the remaining chopped garlic. Cook until the garlic becomes fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes, stirring often. Add the tomatillo sauce and simmer until the shrimp are curled and opaque, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve sprinkled with the cilantro.
