Cilantro Lime Shrimp

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!

Season the shrimp with cumin, and salt and pepper to taste.

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and the remaining shrimp to the pan and cook, undisturbed, for about 2 minutes. Turn the shrimp over, add the garlic, and cook until the shrimp is opaque throughout, about 1 minute. Return the first batch of shrimp to the skillet, mix well so that the garlic is evenly incorporated and remove the pan from the heat.
