Adobo, Garlic Barbecued Shrimp
'o sole mio
the flip-flop-hot-dog days in june and july that spin us around the solstice make up my favorite part of the year. when the sun hovers at 23º 26′ 17″ north, these happiest of days stretch out long and lazy like a hammock strung between two trees. jim and i linger under the ceiling fans that circle bogus-breezes through our rooms, we eat smoky-sticky barbecued dishes hot off the grill, and float off for a nap under the leafy canopy of shade that loafs across our pool.
che bella cosa e' na jurnata 'e sole–
what a beautiful thing is a sunny day.
dried chilies can be hot or mild, fruity, spicy, and smoky.
to reconstitute: cover them in water in a small sauce pan and bring it to a boil. allow them to cool in their own liquid. remove the stems and seeds–chop or mince.
