When You Have Free Shrimp

So long story short, my boyfriend and I  had a house party for May 24 Weekend. Our guests brought beverages, burgers, sausages, steaks, salads, and shrimps. When all was said and done the next day, they ended up leaving us all the food. 🙂

I don’t normally have shrimp in my home, but have been buying them ever since as they are a great lean protein add-on to meals.

So here is a quick shrimp recipe that pairs lovely with rice!

1 Tablespoon of Lemon or Lime juice

  1. Make sure to devein shrimp or double check shrimp that they have been cleaned properly. Prepared shrimp tend to have a bit of the vein left in them.
  2. Prepare all the ingredients in a Tupperware and let marinade for a preferred period of time. We made ours after 3 hours.
