Shrimp with green sauce

Some years ago I ordered an appetizer at a restaurant in Denver. It was shrimp in green sauce. It was fabulous. My waiter gave me some guidance as to what was in it. I managed to reconstruct it at home.

Remove the lower stems from a bunch of cilantro and put the bunch into the food processor. It took some doing to figure out the proportions of these remaining ingredients, but I started slow and built it up. Add the following:

juice of 1/2 a lime

1 Tbs white vinegar

2 garlic cloves, chopped fine

a splash of olive oil

a couple pinches of salt and pepper

This is where I started. Once you buzz this up you can remove it to a bowl to make further adjustments.

I had an idea for a green sauce like this after a meal we had at The Elephant Bar. I'm going to definitely try this one first and see how close it is to what I had. Thanks for this!
