Chili Lime Shrimp

I just love shrimp. It is one of my absolute favorites as an appetizer or as a main dish so I am always finding new and creative ways to prepare it. I came up with this fabulous marinade with just enough chili to get your attention and the perfect twist of lime! This is one of our “Time Saver” recipes too. Finishing Salts are great to use towards the end of cooking. They add a lot of texture and flavor to your food in addition to a marinade and/or seasoning. This is a very light and refreshing dish. Your going to love this one!

Chili Lime Shrimp

1 lb. Shrimp Peeled
2 Green Onions Minced
½ Cup Lime Juice
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
2 Garlic Cloves Minced
1 Jalapeno Minced
Black Pepper to taste
1 oz. Tequila (optional)

Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl.

Place liquid marinade and shrimp in a zip lock bag and marinade for 30 min.

Do not exceed 30 min. of marinade time as the shrimp will start to cook due to the lime juice.

Grill the shrimp at medium heat for about 2-3 minutes per side.

Finish the shrimp using The Zesty Moose Chili Lime Finishing Salt.
