  • 1 lb Shrimp peeled and deveined
  • ½ T minced Garlic
  • 1 T Curry Powder
  • ½ T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1  T Chopped Cilantro
  • ½ T Lime Juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Ground Black Pepper to taste

Combine the olive oil with the curry powder, salt and pepper, stir well and pour this mixture over the shrimp, make sure every single shrimp is well covered and seasoned with the curry mixture and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 10-15 minutes.

Preheat a skillet or griddle, brush it with a bit of olive oil, and cook the shrimp for about 5 minutes or until cooked. (The shrimp will get a pinkish color once it’s cooked, so don’t overcook it!) Once the shrimp is done, turn off the heat and righ there in the skillet add in the fresh cilantro and lime juice, give everything a quick toss, and serve.

Serve over your favorite salad, pasta or rice, or even better, make some delicious tacos with these, heat up some tortilla, grab some fresh pico de gallo and avocado slices and there you have it heaven in a taco, for a healthier version feel free to replace the tortillas with lettuce leaves!
