Chile-Garlic Shrimp

This shrimp dish was from Chef José Andrés, who I've seen on TV for years now, but never tried any of his food. It was a super easy and delicious recipe! It's the perfect speedy weeknight dish to serve with some leftover rice or vegetables. The sauce has a ton of flavor from not many ingredients, and Dino and I were thrilled with how it turned out.
