Recipe: Jalapeno-Garlic Shrimp

A great recipe from Martha Stewart Living. And it takes just seconds to make. You may wish to serve with Mango-Radish Salad and Cilantro Rice with Peas.

20 large shrimp (about 1 pound), peeled and deveined (tails left intact; optional)

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 jalapeno chile (stem, ribs, and seeds removed), finely chopped

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Toss together shrimp, garlic, jalapeno, lime juice, and 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Marinate in refrigerator for 45 minutes.

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove shrimp from marinade, and add to skillet; cook through, about 2 minutes per side.
