This Chili Lime Shrimp is one of my favorite shrimp recipes I make for my family. It’s so flavorful and delicious, not to mention super easy. You can always marinate them ahead of time and grill whenever you are ready for them.
This Chili Lime Shrimp recipe can also be meal prepped. It’s high in protein and low in carbs, which is most peoples favorite choice of meal for meal prep meals. You can seve with a low cab side option like veggies or even some healthy carbs like quinoa, sweet potatoes and brown rice. I really like having it with sweet potatoes. Let’s get to how to make this delicious recipe.
HOW TO MAKE THE CHILI LIME SHRIMP:
First you thaw the shrimps. I like using raw shrimps most of the time everything I cook. You can use the cooked ones if you like though. You will just have to adjust the cooking time. You marinate the shrimps and can either cook right away or marinate them for 30-24 hours in advance. I am usually in a hurry so I just marinate them for about 15 minutes while I prepare the side dish.
Assemble the shrimps on the skewers. I love these skewers because they are shorter and more durable when you are using an outdoor grill. I got these skewers from Lowes, but you can also find them online at Walmart.com. I have ordered them there before as well. You will love these skewers!
So I grilled the shrimp skewers on an indoor grill I use a lot. It’s by DeLonghi and it’s been a few years since I have had it. But you can use a griddle as well to grill them if you don’t have an indoor grill or just broil them in your oven. I usually grill them for about 5 minutes on each side.
This Chili Lime Shrimp recipe is super easy to make and you can always prepare it ahead and grilled them for dinner after work or simply at anytime you are wanting to serve a meal for your family. If you live in a warmer place, they taste even better if you grill them outside on a charcoal grill. If you usually invite friends over, this recipe will keep them super happy, leaving you with lots of compliments on your cooking skills.
