Marinated in lime juice and chili powder these are sure to satisfy! Marinated in lime juice and chili powder these are sure to satisfy!
Number of Servings: 4


    1 lb shrimp (cleaned and deveined)
    Juice of 2 limes
    1/2 tsp chili powder
    1 tbsp canola oil (less if desired)
    1 tsp honey
    Salt and Pepper
    Optional: Cayenne pepper (If you want spicier shrimp!)


Mix all ingredients but shrimp in medium to large bowl.

Add shrimp, stir to coat and marinate for 5-10 minutes. Due to the high acidity of the marinade, you don't want to marinate it too long or the acid in the lime juice will cook the shrimp.

Preheat a large skillet or pan on medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook for 3-5 minutes on the first side, or until they are mostly opaque. Flip and cook another 1-3 minutes.

Enjoy! Makes enough for 4 people.

Note: It's not necessary to peel the shells off the shrimp before marinating/cooking. I didn't and they still tasted awesome (I think the shell adds a little extra flavor when cooking).
