Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Written by Denae

I kind of have an obsession with shrimp. It’s not as severe as my obsession with coconut, but you can only imagine how happy coconut shrimp makes me! I’m also constantly on the lookout for making recipes that are easy, fast, and tasty! Aside from some manual labor on the shrimp, which can easily be avoided by purchasing shrimp that are already shelled and deveined, this meal is super fast!

The tart lime and flavorful seasonings make this dish a real treat. Although I always pick quinoa over rice, it can be served with rice and still be wonderful. Give it a go and let us know what you think!

Instructions
  1. Cook your quinoa (or rice) according to the instructions on the bag. I add the juice of half a lime to the water to give the quinoa more flavor.
  2. If you bought shrimp that wasn't already shelled and veined, these pictures will help you. Pinch the end of the shrimp and pull the shell off the surface, then remove the feet from the bottom of the shrimp. After, cut along the outside of the shrimp, just deep enough to see the colored vein. Remove the vein from the shrimp and throw away.
  3. Heat the oil in a deep pan. Toss in those shrimp and drizzle with the other half of the lime as they turn from gray/blue to pink. This should only take about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the drained black beans and drained sweet corn. Mix in the spices. Mix in the quinoa. Simmer until everything is warmed up.
  5. Serve with freshly chopped cilantro and a sliver of lime. Voila! Dinner served and family is happy 🙂
