Cilantro Lime Shrimp with a Honey Lime Dipping Sauce

Cilantro Lime Shrimp with a Honey Lime Dipping Sauce

This is an old recipe that was a huge hit with my family. I think it would be a great Super Bowl appetizer. If it’s too cold outside to grill, just cook the shrimp in a grill pan or skillet.

I wanted a quick and tasty dinner that was easy to make. I grabbed some shrimp and marinated them in lime zest and juice, cilantro, olive oil and garlic for an hour then had my husband grill them. I had leftover honey lime dressing from the Grilled Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad, so I used it for a dipping sauce and it was so delicious. My whole family really loved these shrimp – we gobbled them all up. I can’t wait to try the honey lime dressing with fish and chicken.

Combine the shrimp, olive oil, lime juice, minced garlic, cilantro, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper together in a large zip lock bag and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Soak wooden skewers in water for a few minutes. Skewer the shrimp on the wooden skewers then place on the grill over medium heat. Cook for a few minutes on each side or until pink and juicy.

  1. I’ll trade out the shrimp for tilapia (allergic) and be a happy camper!

    Sadly, I am allergic to shrimp, but this looks so delicious! I like Blonde Duck’s suggestion of using tilapia instead!

    This sounds really good. I have some shrimp in the freezer.

  5. We make a similar shrimp dish that also includes ginger and soy sauce and I think your dressing would go well with it.
