Lime-Cilantro Shrimp

ABF (Awesome BoyFriend) & I put together this lip-smacking shrimp dish on New Year's Eve, and I can't wait to make it again.

You know I like it simple--and here goes: get a pound of cooked, frozen shrimp and let it thaw. Overnight in the fridge is the easiest, but if you're in a hurry, put it in a bowl of cold water and let it sit for 30 minutes.

Add the juice of 3 limes, a whole mess of garlic cloves (the recipe calls for 1 but I used 3 big ones), and a good dose of olive oil. Chop up a bunch of fresh cilantro and let the goodness marinate for at least a few hours (Have I mentioned that this was the hardest part for me).

This seriously took us all of 5 minutes to assemble. The waiting is the hardest part.

We had a few of these that night with a glass of white wine (Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, one of my favorite whites--I think this was 2009 or 2010?) and savored every tangy bite. This is rocketing up to the top of my favorites list!

1 pound cooked frozen shrimp, thawed

1-3 cloves of garlic (minced/chopped)

Add all the ingredients in the bowl, cover and chill for at least 3 hours (but overnight is best!)--enjoy!
