Personal Notes:
*Note: Because chili peppers, such as jalapeņos, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chili peppers, put plastic bags over your hands or wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chili peppers, wash your hands well with soap and warm water.
Make-Ahead Tip: Prepare shrimp as above. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for up to 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Drain well, reserving marinade. Cook and serve as above.
