Preparation

  1. To prepare the potatoes, place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with water.  To the water add the salt, garlic cloves, and lemon.  Place the pot over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook the potatoes for 20-25 minutes or until they are fork-tender.  Drain the potatoes, discard the lemon and garlic.  Transfer the potatoes to a bowl and toss together with the pesto.  Keep the potatoes warm until ready to serve.
  2. To prepare the shrimp, clean the shrimp if it has not already been done. In a large nonstick pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add the chilies and garlic. Allow the aromatics to cook for about a minute before adding the shrimp. Once cooked the shrimp will become opaque, this will take about 3-5 minutes.
  3. To plate arrange the potatoes in the center of a serving platter. Place the shrimp around the perimeter of the potatoes and serve right away. Enjoy!
