This Garlic Lime Shrimp is pan seared with some lime butter along with a garlic cilantro sauce. It is such a quick and healthy recipe to make for when you are in a hurry or just craving some shrimp.

For this dish we are serving alongside a fresh avocado, but there are so many ways to enjoy this shrimp.

Think in a tortilla, over rice or over a bed of cooked pasta.

I have always favored my shrimp with lemon garlic butter and  though that is just as good.

I also like to use lime too, adding in fresh cilantro with that gives this dish a mexican feel and really enhances all the other flavors.

Once you try this shrimp, you will be hooked, just be careful to not overcook the shrimp or it will become rubbery.

You are going to want to cook it on medium low heat till it turns pink in color then you will want to remove it immediately from the heat and serve.

Nothing beats fresh shrimp like this, drizzle with extra lime juice if desired and enjoy!

Buen provecho!
