At almost any of the various Latin restaurants on Long Island, you’ll find that classic crowd-pleaser, camarones al ajillo, or shrimp in garlic sauce. Here are four restaurants — one Dominican, one Pan-Latin, one Mexican and one Colombian — each with its own version of the dish.

CASA DEL CAMPO DOMINICAN RESTAURANT

Camarones al ajillo feature, plump shrimp in a sauce that’s gently, rather than harshly, informed with garlic. Rice and red or black beans are a traditional accompaniment. Or get it as part of mofongo, made with mashed plantains. ($18)

1159 Deer Park Ave., North Babylon, 631-586-1171

CHICKEN COOP

At this Colombian restaurant, the shrimp in garlic sauce features lots of shellfish in a resonant garlic sauce arranged in a circle around a hillock of yellow rice. ($19.50)

159 Rockaway Ave., Valley Stream, 516-568-2667

EL RANCHITO MEXICAN GRILL

Shrimp bathed in garlic sauce packs a subtle chile-fired kick; here, it’s paired with rice and green beans. ($16.95)

66 Larkfield Rd., East Northport, 631-262-9704

ANACONDA LATIN FUSION BISTRO

A surefire hit at this pretty pan-Latin spot is camarones al ajillo, plump shrimp in a mellow garlic sauce. ($13)

1624 New York Ave., Huntington Station, 631-351-9797
