I don't make seafood too often, after all, we are landlocked here. I did, however, find some precooked, frozen shrimp on sale at the grocery store. It fits in with my efforts to cut some calories. Since I don't have the college boys here to feed, I splurged and bought some. I have been playing around with different recipes that aren't drowning in butter.
Now I am all about easy. You will not find me in the kitchen de-veining shrimp. I can manage to pull off the tails for myself, as this "medium" size calls for. This recipe is a breeze, as long as you give yourself some marinating time. I put the recipe together this morning, and heated the shrimp up for my noon meal. I could not believe how good this was. I made it spicy with red pepper flakes, but they aren't necessary. If you like cilantro, you will love this dish. If you think it tastes like soap, you might as well call this recipe sudsy shrimp! The cilantro flavor really comes through with the mild shrimp.
