Cilantro Lime Shrimp
Cilantro and lime make this simple shrimp dish outstanding. Serve this over rice or with a salad. Shrimp is one of my favorite skinny foods to cook with. It’s packed with protein, low in calories, and cooks in minutes which is great when you need a quick delicious meal.
- • 2 tsp olive oil
- • 2 lb shrimp, shelled and deviened
- • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
- • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- • 1 lime
- • salt and pepper
Heat a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Add oil to the pan, when hot add shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. 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.
