Cilantro and lime make this simple shrimp dish outstanding – and it takes just minutes to make! We serve it over rice or with a big avocado and lettuce salad.
1 1/2poundspeeled and deveined jumbo shrimp
1/4teaspoonplus 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
Kosher Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2teaspoonsextra-virgin olive oil
2tablespoonslime juice(from 1 medium lime)
3 to 4tablespoonschopped fresh cilantro
Season the shrimp with cumin, and salt and pepper to taste.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add 1 teaspoon of the oil to the pan, then add half of the shrimp. Cook them undisturbed for about 2 minutes. Turn the shrimp over and cook until opaque throughout, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate.
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.
Squeeze the lime juice over all the shrimp. Add the cilantro, toss well, and serve.
