easy shrimp and garlic

had some shrimp in the freezer, about 1 lb. and a half, that had to be used.  In a small skillet I melted  some butter and some olive oil, about 1/2 cup, along with 10 chopped garlic cloves and crumbled dried chilies de arbol.  I squeezed in some lime juice and a bit of salt. Cooked for a minute or two.  Placed the shrimp in a baking dish in a 400 degree oven covered with the sauce. They cooked in 10 minutes. Before eating I squeezed a little more lime juice over and sprinkled with chopped scallion and cilantro.  Very tasty. Wonderful for bread dipping.
