Luscious Southwestern Baked Shrimp

Have you ever been haunted by a recipe that you couldn't locate?
Oh, the heartbreak!
I had a pound of shrimp yearning to be prepared like my friends K&J's favorite shrimp, but I couldn't remember their recipe.

I had some extra limes on hand, as well as a half-bunch of cilantro, so I went to work creating a version that was simply luscious in it's own right. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.


Luscious Southwestern Baked Shrimp
1# large shrimp, peeled
juice of one lime
1/4c olive oil
1 chopped tomato
2 thinly sliced garlic cloves
3/4 t. salt, ground pepper
1/2 t. Old Bay Shrimp Seasoning (or your favorite southwest or cajun seasoning)

Simply mix all ingredients together and let marinade 15 minutes.
Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees in a 9" x 13" glass dish.
Sprinkle with chopped cilantro.

Serve over brown rice, pasta or julienned and sauteed zuccini, making sure to drizzle with the juices.
Mmmmmmmmm.



P.S. I found the recipe. . .

K&J's Shrimp Recipe
1# large shrimp, peeled
2-3 T. chile oil
2-3 T. olive oil
2-4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 pint cherry tomatoes
a handful of your favorite cheese -- feta, gruyere, or chevre

Simply mix all ingredients together and let marinade 15 minutes.
Bake 5 minutes at 450 degrees on a cookie sheet.
Sprinkle with cheese, and return to oven for 3 minutes to melt cheese and meld flavors.

Serve over brown rice, pasta or julienned and sauteed zuccini, and enjoy!
