This fast and easy recipe not only tastes great, it smells and looks delicious too. My mouth just waters when I look at it. Shrimp swimming in lemon and spice is all so nice…for my tummy! A serving, about 3 ounces of shrimp, has 17 grams of protein, 15% iron, and 21% B12 of your daily value! How’s that for this flavorful crustacean!
8 lemons, juiced
4 serrano chili
1 small onion, quartered
1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 cups cilantro
1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (you can use cooked the precooked but it’s a little chewy)
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
3 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and sliced
WHAT TO DO
1. In a food processor, blend the first 5 ingredients until smooth, about 20-30 seconds. Add the cilantro and blend another 5 seconds or so. Combine the marinade with the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Chill for at least 2 hours.
The flavors get even better the next day!
