  • 4Next add the shrimp and sautee until an opaque pink color.
  • 5While the shrimp is cooking, mince the garlic good and add to the shrimp while sauteeing.

  • 7At this point toss with garlic salt and add the
    queso fresco (fresh mexican cheese) and pepper and enjoy dipping the bread and eating the shrimp with a ice cold beer.
