RECIPE NOTES

  • I prefer the 21-30 size shrimp, but you can use your favorite size.
  • You can cook the shrimp in batches, if needed. Just make sure not to overcook your shrimp!
  • You can adjust the amount of jalapeño, and whether you use seeds, to control the amount of heat here.
  • The fresh cilantro and lime juice really make this dish pop – don’t skip them!
  • This goes great over rice or quinoa, or in tacos or wraps.
