Petite Inspirations

In the name of inspiration and all things interesting to me and hopefully you.

Agua Chili


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!


INGREDIENTS

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.

TIP
The flavors get even better the next day!
