Martha's Jalapeno & Garlic Shrimp
I decided to make that yummy Cucumber & Dill salad again and thought a simple shrimp dish would go nice. This shrimp recipe comes from Martha Stewart Living May 2010. It might appeal to some of you who don't like your food too spicy. I found it a bit bland for my taste and would prefer to have something with a bit more kick like my Adobo Shrimp . Still, I liked it enough to eat a bunch of them. And I did just run out of black pepper so, maybe that would have helped. :)
1 pound of peeled, deveined shrimp
3 garlic cloves pressed
1/2 jalapeno chile, seeds removed, finely chopped (I recommend the entire chile)
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
3 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1. Toss together the shrimp, garlic, lime juice and a Tbsp of the oil. Season with salt and pepper, and marinate in fridge for 45 minutes.
2. Heat remaining oil in large skillet over med/high heat. Remove the shrimp from the marinade and add to skillet. You can use less oil if you use a non stick skillet. Cook through, about 2 minutes per side.
serve with lime wedges.
