This lime and cilantro marinade is perfect for juicy shrimp! They grill up fast with big flavors! This is so healthy and fresh, and just perfect for a summer dinner.
I skewered the shrimp along with lime wedges and brushed them with the marinade a couple of times and let it sit for about 15 minutes before grilling them. I served this with brown rice. The grilled limes were delicious squeezed on the shrimp!
Here's what you need:
1 pound uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined.
1/3 cup chopped cilantro leaves
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
2 T olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 t salt
1/4 t ground cumin
1/4 t ground black pepper
Skewer the shrimp and wedges of one of the limes. Combine the zest and juice of the other lime, and all the other ingredients in a bowl. Brush this marinade mixture over the shrimp skewers,turning to get both sides. Apply the marinade generously, ( I did two coats). Let the shrimp and lime skewers sit for about 15 minutes. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Grill the shrimp until the shrimp is pink, about 2-4 minutes per side. This is a light and healthy meal that I know the whole family will enjoy!
