Prep time
10 mins
Michael Paynic for The Wedge Co-op, Minneapolis from the Co-op Advantage Program


Serve as the main attraction or a great appetizer.


1⁄4 clime juice, from 2-3 fresh limes
2 clvgarlic, sliced
1 large jalapeno, diced
1⁄4 tsea salt
1 ccanola oil
1 lbeasy-peel shrimp with the shell on


In a food processor, process lime juice, garlic, jalapeno and salt until smooth. Slowly add oil until emulsified. Pour marinade over shrimp in a bowl and marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove shrimp from marinade and add to a hot skillet or grill. Cook shrimp for 2 minutes on each side. Season with salt to taste.


If you don't have a food processor, use a blender to make the marinade, or simply mince the dry ingredients very finely and pulverize together using a mortar and pestle or on a cutting board, using the flat side of a heavy knife and then blend with the lime juice and oil in a sealed jar.
