In my quest of clean eating, I came across this recipe and knew i had to try it. It is such a perfect recipe for a warm, sunny day!
- 1 pound small shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 small cucumber, quartered and sliced
- 1/4 cup sliced red onion
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 minced jalapeño (WEAR GLOVES WHEN CUTTING)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cracked pepper
I cooked the shrimp in a pot of boiling water for about 3 minutes until it was just done. Then I rinsed them with cold water to stop the cooking process, and combined the shrimp with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
I let the mixture chill for a few hours to allow the flavors to meld together. This is such an easy recipe, and it’s packed with protein and flavorrrrrrrrr! 😀
DISCLAIMER: WEAR GLOVES WHEN YOU CUT THE JALAPENO!! I make the rookie mistake of using my bare hands…and my entire left hand swelled up. It burned like HELL for six hours, and kept me up all night. Pleaseeeeeeee wear gloves, or at least coat your hand in oil before you cut into the jalapeno. I tried EVERY remedy suggested online, and none of them helped. Learn from my mistakes.
