How to make this chili lime shrimp recipe

There are two parts to making this recipe and both are very simple. 

  1. Chop the veggies, toss them with oil, salt, and pepper and put them into your oven to roast. 
  2. Quickly marinate the shrimp then cook them in a pan. 

Shrimp cook very fast, which is why we cook them separately. It allows us to reduce the marinade and turn it into a sauce AND keeps the shrimp juicy and tender. 

What is in the chili lime shrimp marinade?

  • Lime juice
  • Coco aminos (although you can substitute soy sauce)
  • Chili powder
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Salt

What to serve with chili lime shrimp

If you're a meat and veggies kind of person (like me!) then this recipe is all you need for dinner. But if you're feeling extra hungry, or are feeding some bigger eaters, making some rice or cauliflower rice is a great way to round out the meal.

Here are a few other ideas:

  1. Make chili lime shrimp tacos. Stuff tortillas full of the shrimp and veggies and top with some sour cream and guacamole.
  2. Make chili lime shrimp ramen. Cook some ramen noodles and top them with the shrimp and veggies. 
  3. Make chili lime shrimp pasta. Toss your favorite pasta with some olive oil and parmesan and all the shrimp and veggies.

Description

Chili Lime Shrimp is a super easy to make and tasty 30-minute dinner. It's a versatile recipe that can be served on its own, over rice or cauliflower rice, or even wrapped up in tacos or lettuce wraps.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 broccoli, chopped into florets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Chili Lime Shrimp

  • Juice from 2 limes (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon coco aminos (can substitute soy sauce – see notes)
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon each: cumin, paprika, and salt
  • 1 1/2 lbs peeled shrimp

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 420 degrees.
  2. Place the peppers, onion, and broccoli on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake for 25 minutes, mixing halfway through.
  3. Once the veggies are in the oven, start the shrimp. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the lime juice, coco aminos, chili powder, cumin, paprika, and salt. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Let the shrimp marinate for 10 minutes.
  4. Drain the marinade into a large frying pan over high heat. Let it cook for 3-4 minutes, or until it starts to reduce. Add the shrimp to the pan and cook for 2-3 mintues on each side.
  5. When the veggies are cooked, add the shrimp to the tray and serve right away.

Notes

If you use soy sauce, omit the salt.

If you'd like some extra color on your shrimp, sprinkle them with a little minced parsley.
