I absolutely love shrimp. And I love food with a Mexican flair. Combine those two components with quick and easy, and we have a winner for dinner — 15-Minute Cilantro-lime Shrimp. Think buttery, tangy, garlicky goodness.
This shrimp is so delicious that I can’t resist standing at the stove and eating it right out of the pan, not only before we eat, but shamefully, afterward as well. You know — when it’s time for “cleanup.” And, it’s not unusual to see my kids eating the leftovers for a midnight snack, or even breakfast.
I like to serve this shrimp over cheesy Mexican brown rice, accompanied by sautéed tricolor peppers and onions, and homemade guacamole. Of course, all those sides take longer than 15 minutes, but this easily could be served over linguine with a salad on the side. Or, if you plan ahead, you can make a big pot of brown rice on the weekend and serve the shrimp over the leftover rice with some corn and avocado. Or maybe serve it with fajitas…or spinach and cheese quesadillas…Have I mentioned that I love Mexican food?
