Cilantro Lime Shrimp


Delicious and takes just minutes to make!

Cilantro and lime make this simple shrimp dish outstanding – and it takes just minutes to make! 

This is an oldie but goodie, a regular in my home. I was making it for dinner the other night and felt the need to re-shoot it. We serve it over rice or with a big avocado and lettuce salad. Enjoy!

  4. I planned to make your Garlic Shrimp with some Cilantro Lime Rice for dinner on Friday night. Now I'm thinking this is a MUCH better plan! Too much cilantro? Too much lime? I think NOT! Thanks again, Gina!

  11. I have a really bad skin reaction to any foods containing anything citrus. i.e. lemons, grapefruit, limes, oranges, tomatoes, etc. Sometimes I even break out when I eat strawberries.

    Many of the low-cal/low fat recipes call for the above foods since they are naturally low fat and good for you. Can you recommed any substitues for them?

    Many thanks...Diane

    1. How about a little vinegar instead of citrus. I'm thinking apple cider, champagne or red wine vinegar. The citrus adds an acidic element and flavor. You should be able to do the same with vinegar.

  12. I'm sorry to hear that! You could make it without the lime.

  13. YUM! I jus tone to pluck one of those shrimp off the screen :D

I know everyone who comes to your site has to be in awe of your excellent presentation. I wish you well and hope to make this shrimp recipe in about a week, as I do have shrimp on freezer.

  19. I have tried many of your recipes this week after stumbling upon your site. Everything has been a huge hit! Even for my 3 year old who is never hungry!
    Question about the shrimp just for clarification-raw shrimp, not precooked shrimp, right?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Gina I am new to this site and can not wait to try your recipes. This will definately help my boredom with my meals lately and keep me on track with weight watchers.

  22. Tried this recipe last night...my family absolutely loved it! I love your site. The recipes I have used so far have been super easy & everyone loves them. They are asking when can we have it again!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just cooked this for dinner over some pasta. I went crazy with the garlic and added some scallion. It was divine! Gonna make some more tomorrow for the whole family.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Absolutely fantastic! Can't wait to try another recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm thinking......Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos for supper tonight. Can't wait to taste this one. BTW - I made the Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice on night this week and it was a huge hit with the whole family.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to share these wonderful recipes and pics.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice is an excellent dish! Glad you enjoyed it. I love the sound of Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos!!! Or even Tosdadas would be excellent!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I ended up making the Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos for supper last night. Served in Fat Free Flour Tortillas and topped with shredded lettuce and an avocado creme sauce that I made by throwing fresh avocado, reduced fat sour cream, fresh lime juice and fresh cilantro in the food processor and blending until smooth.
    It was a DELICIOUS :). I served black beans on the side.

    Thanks again Gina.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I used PAM and no oil to save some points!

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Lily- I love the sound of those tacos! I might have to try that next time I make this! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I added 3 tbs of orange juice to this recipe to help sweeten it and balance some of the flavors.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I made Cilantro Lime Shrimp tacos last night..... Oh my goodness! So good, reduced fat sour creat, ww shredded cheese, whole wheat tortillas AND your 0 point Pico de Gallo. My boyfriend loved them and had no idea he was eating healthy

    Love your site Gina keep it up!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I made these the other night and believe me they were a hit!!!! I served them with a salad and steamed edamame from frozen section. I brought leftovers to work and everyone wanted to know which thai restaurant I got them from, haha!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. This was a delicious recipe. I used what I had on hand, which was frozen,prepared shrimp, bottled lime juice, minced jarred garlic, and fresh cilantro. The reaction of the oil, lime juice, and water from the shrimp made a "creamy" sauce, and I served these as tacos with leftover cilantro lime rice. I got a thumbs-up from 2 out of three kids and the husband (who eats anything)said these were good. I have enough left over for lunch tomorrow!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Excellent! I wish my daughter ate shrimp. She just discovered she's allergic so I guess it's just as well that she doesn't like it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I made this for lunch today! Delicious, thank you for the recipe. I served it on top of cilantro lime rice that I made earlier this week and reheated. I also used lime juice instead of lime since I didn't have one. it was great!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Gina! You are amazing! My boyfriend wants to send you flowers. Thank you so much for this blog. Everything we have tried (7 dinners) have been beyond fabulous.

    YOU ARE THE BEST!

  37. I like Hydrangeas!! : )

  38. This was so delicious, my husband made it for me as a surprise for Mothers day and it was a delight!
    Fresh, light and we had it with rice and brussel sprouts, and I even made a light version of those biscuits you get at the red lobster, with reduced fat bisquick and some cheddar cheese and pepper...yummmy

    Thanks Gina

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sounds great, I'd like to try it with Mexican rice.

    ReplyDelete
  40. This was absolutely delicious. I also made your version of Chipotle's Cilatro Lime Rice! Perfecto.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I made this a few weeks ago with the cilantro lime rice and it was delish! thanks for the great recipes :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thanks! This one is made weekly at my house now!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I made this last week for my husband and I!!! He loved it and he is not thrilled about low fat food! It was DELICIOUS!!! I paired it with the cilantro lime rice with habanero! I love all of your recipes! Thank you so much, it makes being on WW easier.

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Ruthie- My husband isn't thrilled about low fat either which is why I have to get creative in the kitchen :). Glad he liked it!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I tested this one the other night before introducing it to my very picky friend that just started her WW journey...again. Delish! I plan to host a ladies luncheon featuring this and the cilantro lime rice. It was so easy, pretty, and yummy. Thanks for posting.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Excellent - everyone at BBQ loved them - quick and easy to prepare, too!

    ReplyDelete
  47. So grateful for this tonight! I was on the verge of making bad decisions... Nothing to eat in the house... Random bag of frozen shrimp, half dead half used bunch of cilantro and a lonesome lime. Viola! THANK YOU THANK YOU! Good decisions make me sooo happy!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm so psyched for dinner tonight. Making this shrimp with some cilantro lime rice on the side. I'm sure it'll be another great dinner at my house thanks to you, Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  49. made this today- wow, so good. i did add a couple things (i like stuff a little hotter): five of those sweet yellow peppers, chopped up... i want to call them pepitos but i'm not sure if that's right? anyway, i also added a bunch of crushed red pepper. the yellow pepper bits, with the green from the cilantro, the red from the pepper flakes all against that shrimp looked really amazing, kind of a confetti effect. it was SO DELICIOUS, too. i had to struggle to put them away before i ate a pound of shrimp, lol. i was thinking that that juice that you're left with would be great to drain, and put in the water for the rice maker for lime rice (if you're going to use it with the shrimp), or for shrimp fried rice or something.

    anyway, tonight i had them on a little soft taco tortilla, and on top i put that slang jane salad from simpledailyrecipes and that was a winner for me, you should totally try it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm intrigued, I'm going to visit Jill's site to see what slang jane is!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. you won't be sorry!

    note: i did zest and juice a lime + 4 or 5 good plugs of chipotle tabasco into the slang jane.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I made this tonight with a side of plain quinoa, sauteed mushrooms, and a salad. I of course had to add hot sauce and it was DELISH! Mom and I loved it. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  53. This dish was awesome! My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary this weekend up in Orlando, and just like the past 6 months or so... we ate like crap. We decided yesterday to commit to a healthy menu, and after a couple of hours of research I found your blog. I made the cilantro lime shrimp tonight, and it was DELICIOUS!!! I've never actually used fresh herbs before, and the difference is amazing. My husband loved the meal and we've already planned our menu for the rest of the week using 5 of your recipes. Thank you so much for the great blog!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Mary Ann- I love fresh herbs, they are wonderful to cook with! I'm so happy you enjoyed this, we love this shrimp dish in my house! I make it often! Enjoy and I'm glad to hear you started eating healthy!

    ReplyDelete
  55. This has become my favorite shrimp recipe. I use this exact one for mexican dishes, but if you need to use shrimp in something italian I sub cilantro for parsley and lime juice for white wine. I make a basic lightened up cheese pizza and just pour the shrimp over the top. It is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am making this for dinner tonight and am going to leave out the cilantro as my husband doesn't like it. I'm going to add just a bit of red pepper flakes. The idea of garlic-lime-pepper shrimp sounds just as good!

    Happy MMXI!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Making this one tonight! With a mango avocado salsa. MMMM

    ReplyDelete
  58. Quick, easy and delicious. If you don't like cilantro, it's equally good with basil and lemon instead of lime.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Had this tonight with couscous and bruschetta with tomatoes and basil. So yummy!! Definately a keeper!! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Is everyone using fresh peeled and deviened shrimp or has anyone use the frozen? I know I see frozen sometimes but I think it is already cooked? I would like to have some "on hand" if possible, but if it doesn't taste as good, it won't be worth it!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I buy frozen deveined raw shrimp all the time and thaw it before I'm ready to cook it.

    ReplyDelete
  62. delicious! best shrimp I've had in a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I made this last night for the first time and didn't want to stop eating! By FAR the best shrimp I have eaten in a while!

    Thank you so much for your site!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I made this last night and it was delicious! My husband raved about how good it was and told me to make sure I kept the recipe!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have made this a couple times already and it is fantastic! The second time I made it I added some cubanelle peppers that I sliced very thin at the end that gave it a little heat. LOVE all the recipes. There are three of us in my office who have made a lot of Gina's recipes and they have all been AMAZING. Looking forward to making more!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Wow, this was delicious! We had it this week and it was a hit! Thanks!

  68. We had this for dinner last night with a side of black bean salad. It was delicious!! Thanks for another great recipe!!

  69. I made this today for dinner and it was the bomb.com! LOVED IT and will definitely make this again...soon.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I made this last week and it was AMAZING!! Served it with Fiesta lime rice- perfect! My sister is coming into town w/ her family and I want to make this again...except she hates cilantro! What could I do instead (I'm clueless in the kitchen!) Thanks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. How about chopped chives? I think that would be great.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Has anyone ever tried these the next day cold. I want to use them for a Mexican Buffet but I don't want to keep them in a crockpot to keep cooking them.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I haven't but cold would be better than left in a crockpot.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Gina,

    I have made this a few times and both times I can't seem to get the Cilantro to stick to the shrimp....is there something else I can do?

    ReplyDelete
  75. I just chop it fine and sprinkle it on top.

    ReplyDelete
  76. This one was great! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I did an all skinny taste week. 7 different recipes from your website, and all were fantastic. The lime shrimp was fantastic as well as the grilled peaches, crock pot Mexican pork, and Waldorf salad. Thanks for your site.

    ReplyDelete
  78. This was so quick and easy and yummy! Not to mention healthy!
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Made this recipe this week and my husband and I loved it!!! We made it with my Spanish rice and corn tortillas, which boosted points, but worth it...haha! I just wish I bought peeled and deveined shrimp because deveining is so time consuming! Thank you for a great recipe and many more recipes to come! They all look amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I made this last night and it was AWESOME! I love lime so I added more than the receipe called for. I would definitely make this again.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I made these tonight and they were EXCELLENT. The perfect summer dish. I'm wondering though, is it really only 4 servings? I used 2 lbs of shrimp (weighed w/ tail shell on) but it seemed like a LOT of food and I noticed the servings were 6 oz which doesn't add up to 2 lbs for 4 servings. Not trying to nitpick just checking on the points value since I know I will be making these often. :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I see your point... somethime I wonder if I knew what I was doing years ago :)
    I'm going to re-make this and re-calculate so it's more specific. 2 lbs is a lot for 4 people!

    ReplyDelete
  83. So I was planning on making this tonight with some southwestern black bean salad and just realized my husband bought cooked frozen shrimp. Am I doomed?? Can I still make this and if so, how? I love your blog by-the-way! It's the ONLY place I go for recipes. I've made so many dishes and have never been disappointed!

    ReplyDelete
  84. You don't normally want to re-heat frozen cooked shrimp, but maybe you can just pan fry it for a minute so it warms through before the second step.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Hi Gina! This was the first Skinnytaste recipe I've tried and I loved it! It was super simple, quick, and most importantly, delicious. Even my husband, who is a healthy-food skeptic, scarfed it up. I paired it with your Cilantro Habanero Rice and some steamed broccoli. Thanks for the time and thought you put into your recipes and the beautiful pictures that accompany them!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Made this over the weekend. Love the simple ingredients yet super flavorful result....it was so good, I am planning to make it for a dinner party I am hosting for New Years. Great job Gina!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Sounds good. I will change the oil to coconut oil that is okay for high heat. Have you found an olive oil that is okay for high heat? I have heard that it goes rancid at a high heat.

    ReplyDelete
  88. This was AMAZING! Just got done eating this for dinner and made the Fiesta Lime rice to go along with this, wow! My Boyfriend was very impressed, as was I. It was a quick dinner to prepare and the flavor unbelievable.
    I'm a life time member with WW and just happen to stumble on to this site today. I will passing this on to friends and using this often. thank you

  89. This is my Signature Dish at the annual beach week -- but before cooking the shrimp, I sprinkle them with chile powder, cumin and cayenne. When the shrimp is cooking, I add a splash of white wine (it quickly cooks down). I make enough for about 16 people in several batches and serve it over lime cilantro rice cooked in chicken broth. The added spices give the shrimp more color as well as more Mexican flavor.

    ReplyDelete
  90. This recipe is on regular rotation for dinner in my house! I usually serve it with rice and a small salad. So simple and tastes great!

  94. Made this once and my husband asked when we can have it again. Who knew making a fantastic shrimp dish could be so easy?

  95. What is the serving size in cups for 6oz?

  96. Laura Roberson2/26/12, 8:46 PM

    Very yummy, even my picky 7-yr old liked it! I put the shrimp on a bed of romaine lettuce and made a tangy dressing by mixing lite ranch, a squeeze of lime and a splash of OJ. It was delicious, like something you would expect at an upscale seafood joint.

    ReplyDelete
  97. One lime for 2lbs of shrimp is not enough. More lime I say!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  98. Hi Gina, I'm loving your website and have already made a few recipes! I just had a question, so the garlic is only crushed not minced?

    ReplyDelete
  99. Yum! This shrimp looks fantastic!

  100. I just tracked this in my weight watchers and came up 6pts not 4

  102. Actually I get 6 points too, any help anybody?

  103. what an interesting blend of flavors! Was delicious, and will definitely be added to our rotation! Thanks for all these great recipes! ~Heidi~

  104. I've made this twice since finding you on Pinterest. It was a hit both times. Such a refreshing change from fried shrimp. I am a huge fan on cilantro so this one will definitely be on my menu often.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Approx. halved and made for dinner for two - this was DELICIOUS!

  110. I made this shrimp and added them to lettuce wraps (Boston lettuce, shredded carrots, and bean sprouts). They were delicious!

  115. haha woops! Never mind! Found it!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Made it tonight for my bro and his family...served it alongside a quinoa/raw spinach dish, just warm garlic seasoned quinoa over raw spinach which wilts the spinach a little. Then shrimps either over it or on the side. Everyone had seconds. Thank you, healthy and delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Made this with cilantro lime rice. Soooo good!

  118. Gina, where have you been all my life??

    Every recipe I try is perfect and fits right in with the way we eat at my house.

    I've passed your website on to so many friends!

    Thank you thank you thank you!

  119. Hi Gina,

    I so love your website. I was referred to your website through MFP and I'm sure glad I came here. To be frank, I'm horrible when it comes to cooking. I'm on a mission to loose weight and was very limited on the things I was cooking. I made this for dinner tonight along with your scallion cilantro lime rice and my husband super loved it. It was delish and will definately be making it over and over again. I can't wait to cook many of the recipes on here. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Gina, We had the Cilantro lime Shrimp last night. How can something so simple be so incredibly delicious? My husband said to "Thank Gina"!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I made the cilantro lime shrimp last night and served it over cilantro lime cauliflower rice. It was delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  122. Really, really good! Will definitely make it again.

    ReplyDelete
  123. WOW!! I tried this last night added some sauteed yellow squash and put it all over angel hair pasta!! It was the perfect light summer dish!!

    ReplyDelete
  124. If you use spray PAM instead of olive oil.. would this reduce the points? I have taught myself to limit oil.. and it seems it is not needed and PAM would work just fine-or even not at all with a non stick pan-I cut point wherever I can. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Stumbled across thie site while I was searching for a shrimp recipe that included cilantro and I'm soooo thankful! I tried this recipe tonight for dinner and it was a sensation :-)

    Consider me a new fan!

    ReplyDelete
  126. This sounds delicious. Is there any way that I could turn this into a freezer recipe?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I suppose you can freeze them after you cook them. After all, the do sell frozen shrimp dinners.

      Delete
  127. Simple and delicious! I threw in a dash of cayenne for some spice & a splash of white wine and it's boyfriend approved. We just wished we had more shrimp to use!

    ReplyDelete
  128. You stated shelled shrimp? Do i have to take the shells off before i season and cook them? Sorry new to this trying to make a dish for my girlfriend and this looks delicious.

    1. yes.. the shells have to be off... you can buy with or without, your choice.

    1. You either crowded the pan, or it needed to be hotter.

  131. This recipe is SO, SO good. I usually fry a little garlic in the oil before I add the shrimp (but only because I LOOOVE garlic), but other than that this recipe is perfect. It's a perfect, light, and easy recipe for the summer.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Absolutely amazing! Thank you for a new favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Just made this. Easy peasy and sooo yummy atop brown rice, with an orange and avocado salad on the side. Fresh, light and satisfying. Perfect pick-me-up for a dreary winter's day.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I made this last night it was SO good! I found your website about a month ago and I've made 6 or 7 of your recipes so far. I love your style of cooking and the photos are great!

    ReplyDelete
  135. Made this last night. Added a little cumin, chili, and cayenne pepper to the shrimp...DELISH! I made half the recipe and it fed my hubby, my daughter, and me. We ate them in lettuce wraps like tacos with a little avacado and tomatoes. I didn't have any left over though :( oh well, just have to make more. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes, Gina!!!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Hi Gina? I tried this the other day. It was amazing. I'm asked to do it again today! This is like the 6th recipe I try from your site. I'm a huge fan. Thanks for all the work you do! Amazing.

  139. If I need to not use any oil what would you suggest? vegetable broth? or water? for the saute?

  140. Yum! I have tried creating this dish myself, and it just hasn't come out the way I want it to. Definitely going to try adding cumin the next time!

    1. I tested it out, and it was so good! I probably would use a little less lime next time, but the cumin made such a huge difference that I'm using it when I make Cilantro Lime Shrimp from now on!

  141. I make something similar but usually serve it with pasta and add a little cream...not exactly "skinny" fare, but quite good!

    I'm certainly going to try this version. I'm sure my waistline will appreciate it...

  146. I heard about your website on the today show, the same day I was planing to start a diet about a week and a half ago. So I decided to make some of your recipes. So far I've made only your recipes and I'm so happy that I've lost 3 lbs already!!! the best part, I don't feel like it's a diet because all the dishes are so yummy and my husband loves them too. I already told my friends about this website and I'm just so happy I found it... Thank you so much!!!!

  154. I made this the other night and it was delicious! And easy, thank you!

  155. The recipe says "1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin". Where does the other 1/8th get added into the directions? Do you just add it all when seasoning the shrimp in step one?

    ReplyDelete
  156. Made this for dinner Tuesday night with the cilantro lime rice. Delicious! Can't wait to try more of your recipes!

  157. Incredibly delicious and will make again and again! My husband, who isn't even a fan of shrimp raved about it! This begs for a day at the beach and a Margarita. ;-) I paired it with this Black Beans and Quinoa recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/quinoa-and-black-beans/detail.aspx

    Also, I added on more squirts of lime juice to my bowl. So good!

  158. I've been using your blog quite regularly for the past year, since I started WW and I have loved every single recipe I've tried!!!! This was no exception- it was delicious!!!! I followed with some other commenters and made it as a taco recipe. I used quac, sour cream and salsa with some lettuce and they were amazing. Definitely going to be adding this to the recipe index for the future!

  159. I made this cilantro shrimp and it turned out excellent.......We didn't have JUMBO shrimp but I used large shrimp over 2lbs......and it is GONE!!!!!!!!! I confess that I was nibbling along the way before dinner...smelled so good and my 21 yr old was going for it as well. He also loves the ZOODLES too! I was testing it out before my husband tried it since he's so picky...he loves the cilantro shrimp. I also made pizza zucchini.......that too disappeared!! Gina...thanks so much for a low fat and low calorie recipies.....I will be looking for more good stuff!
