A lot of times on the weekend I just want to eat. I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen preparing elaborate meals, so I love making shrimp. It cooks fast and you only need to marinate it for a few minutes for the flavors to steep in. Feel free to add whatever you have in the kitchen, this is what I had on hand.
1 lb of Large Gulf Shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped,
1 lime, juiced,
1 tbs of evoo
salt and pepper to taste
(I would have added 2 tbs of cilantro but I didn’t have any on hand)
Peel and devein the shrimp if it hasn’t already been done, I got mine at the farmers market so I had to do this step.
Add all ingredients to a bowl and let marinade for about 10 mins
Heat up a cast iron grill pan to medium heat. Add shrimp and cook for 2 to 3 mins, then flip and cook on the other side.
Done! See super easy! I ate these with roasted tomato cauliflower and some sauteed red chard.
