Cilantro Pepper Shrimp

  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup packed cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • salt, to taste

Avocado Lime Dipping Sauce

  • 3/4 of a large avocado
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1/3 cup lime juice

garnish: chopped cilantro, freshly cracked black pepper


    • Combine the oil olive, cilantro, pepper, lime juice, and salt to large cup and blend with an immersion blender until cilantro is broken down. You can also do this in a blender.
    • Place marinade in a large bag or container with shrimp and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes, maximum of 3 hours.
    • Using 4 metal skewers, pierce the shrimp so that you have an even amount of pieces on each.
    • Heat either a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Once at temperature, add the skewers and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until they are firm.
    • While the shrimp cooks, make the sauce. Add the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
    • Top shrimp with more chopped cilantro and fresh black pepper. Enjoy!
