Cilantro and Lime Marinated Spicy Shrimp Cocktails

Thought I’d try a new twist on shrimp cocktails this evening.  We eat quite a bit of seafood so trying recipes is always a treat.  This was inspired by a recipe I clipped from a magazine a few weeks ago.

Marinated Shrimp Cocktails

  • 12 o.z. shrimp ~ peeled with tails on
  • 1 Serrano pepper ~ finely diced
  • 1 green onion ~ thinly sliced
  • 1 Roma tomato ~ diced
  • 1/4 cup red onion ~ diced
  • 1 tsp cilantro
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs rice vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 tsp mexican oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp cumin

Cook shrimp; drain, chill and set aside.  Combine remaining ingredients in bowl.  Add cooked shrimp; stir together; refrigerate at least one hour or until ready to serve.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
