A very delicious, quick and easy to prepare shrimp recipe from Ecuador. The amount of the ingredients may be varied according to taste. Some people like to add some ketchup at the end. Excellent as a breakfast course for the morning after hangover! Or a light lunch with a cold beer. Or as a side dish any time of the day. It goes best with lightly salted unbuttered popcorns and fried green plantain chips if eaten as a main dish. Aaah, brings back fond memories of lying in a hammock on the beaches of Ecuador...
