Foods to Make: Cilantro, Lime Shrimp

Hey Everyone!

Wow, today was my first day of classes for college. I'm sorry but where did the days of juice boxes and ants on a log go?! Anyways…I haven't done one of these posts in a while and so I figured it was time to bring them back - right? I made this recipe about a month and a half ago with my mom and I was shocked at how easy and delicious this was. It is also pretty healthy for you!

As many of you know, I LOVE shrimp. If you watched my weekly vlog series, then you know I love sautéing shrimp. It is so easy and delicious. I've described exactly how I make it in one of the vlogs, so if you're interested, check one of those out :)))

This post however is not about how I make my shrimp on the reg, but about the amazing recipe that is cilantro lime shrimp.

I first found the recipe on Pinterest, like I do all of my other recipes that I share with you. I cooked it all by myself, so you shouldn't be afraid to try out this recipe as well!

Here is the link to the recipe:
* I didn't want green beans as my side, so we just did a salad instead.


2 TSP Olive Oil
2 LB Shrimp (deviened and shelled) I got mine at Whole Foods.
6 cloves of garlic - crushed
1/3 cup of fresh cilantro
1 lime
Salt and pepper

All you do is pour your two teaspoons of olive oil into a hot pan and add your shrimp. Once the shrimp tails have turned pink, flip them over and add your garlic. Once you flip them, it should be about a minute and a half until they are completely cooked and you can pull them out. I like to slightly burn mine, I know that sounds a little weird, but I think it tastes better when the shrimp has a little but more of flavor on the edges. To me, it gives a little bit of a teriyaki vibe.

Anyways, after you pull your shrimp off, pour them into a bowl. In the bowl add your lime and garlic. Serve this dish hot and there you have it!

See?! I told you guys it would be easy. It was delicious and simple, I highly recommend it!

Until next time foodies,
