cilantro lime shrimp

Man, oh, man was this shrimp good! I LOVE the combination of cilantro and lime in almost anything! Shrimp is such a great and fast weeknight dinner option. You can literally whip this up in less than 10 minutes. Not only is shrimp super fast but it’s also great for you! Low in calories, tons of protein! Try it with some brown rice or some crispy garlic toast to soak up all the yummy juices!


recipe adapted from:

2 tsp. olive oil

2 lb. shrimp, shelled and deveined

6 cloves garlic, crushed and roughly chopped

1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro

1 lime

salt and pepper

1 tsp. chili powder


Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Add oil to the pan, when oil is hot add shrimp. Season with salt, pepper and chili powder. When the shrimp is cooked on one side, about 2 minutes, turn over and add garlic. Sauté another minute or two until shrimp is cooked, careful not to overcook. Remove from heat. Squeeze lime all over shrimp and toss with cilantro. Serve hot.

*That’s it! Super easy!! Try it sometime this week 🙂
