Recipe: Cilantro-Lime Shrimp



  • 1 bag of Shrimp, deveined (I used medium sized but next time I will use Large)
  • 1 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 1/2 TSP Chili Powder
  • 2 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 White Onion
  • 1-2 Limes or lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons Cilantro


  1. Heat olive oil in the pan.
  2. Toss garlic, chili powder and onions into pan
  3. After a few minutes toss in shrimp, lime juice and cilantro
  4. Cooke 1-3 minutes on each side until shrimp turns pink.


I served this with rice but it would also be just as good with some avocado in a tortilla shell as shrimp tacos.
