Love It or Leave It

Posted on


Today I’m bringing to you a touchy subject.  Cilantro.  That herbaceous little plant is something people either love or hate.  Heck, even Ina Garten says she hates cilantro.  But I know someone that adores it.  My adorable husband.  He wants cilantro on everything, in everything.  Once I mistakenly put cilantro in Crawfish Etoufee, and he thought it was the best thing on Earth.

So I set out to make him a dish that would please his cilantro-loving palate.  This is my Mexican Shrimp Scampi. He loved it!  It was so quick to put together.  And the sauce? What could be better for a cilantro (and lime) lover than a butter sauce full of cilantro, garlic, and lime.  If you are a cilantro lover or know one, this dish is the one to make.

12 ounces shrimp, peeled & deveined (tails on or off, you decide)
6 T butter
1/4 C chopped fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lime
Salt & pepper, to taste

Melt the butter in a large skillet.  Add in the shrimp and cook until done, about 5-6 minutes.  Add in the garlic and cook an additional minute.  Stir in the cilantro and season with salt and pepper.  Squeeze the lime all over and serve. Sumber
