Oh man I really love shrimp! I love how versatile it is, easy to cook and just how good it is. This recipe is no exception and it’s easily a new favorite. We’ll definitely be putting this on our meal rotation!

This recipe calls for a lot of cilantro and lime, which is right up my alley! And don’t forget to drizzle some of the pan sauce over top of the shrimp before you eat them. It makes them that much better!
