How to make this chili lime shrimp recipe
There are two parts to making this recipe and both are very simple.
- Chop the veggies, toss them with oil, salt, and pepper and put them into your oven to roast.
- 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
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:
- Make chili lime shrimp tacos. Stuff tortillas full of the shrimp and veggies and top with some sour cream and guacamole.
- Make chili lime shrimp ramen. Cook some ramen noodles and top them with the shrimp and veggies.
- Make chili lime shrimp pasta. Toss your favorite pasta with some olive oil and parmesan and all the shrimp and veggies.

Loved the flavor of these. Served them with some rice and broccoli for a simple dinner last night.
How can the cook time be 20 minutes when the veggies alone need to bake for 25 minutes? You didn’t seem to allow any prep time for chopping all the vegetables either.
That’s not quite right, is it? It’s been corrected. Thanks for the heads up!
