Garlic Lime Shrimp

Light and easy to prepare, this is a great dish for a warm summer night. If you can't bear the thought of turning on your stove, grill these up on the BBQ and make a marinade out of the seasoning. This is great as the star of your meal, but can also play a great supporting role to grilled chicken or steaks.


Recipe yields 4 servings

Ingredients  
2 lb large or jumbo shrimp, cleaned with the tails off
1 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
Juice from 1 lime
1/4 cup chopped cilantro


Heat the butter and oil in a pan and add the shrimp. Cook for 2-3 minutes and flip. Cook until shrimp are pink.


Add the chopped garlic and lime juice to the pan and toss the shrimp around. Cook for an additional minute or so.


Remove to a serving dish and mix with the chopped cilantro.


Serve & enjoy!
