Ready in just 15 minutes, this colorful Tex-Mex dish is so festive and flavorful that you'll be proud to serve it to guests over a bed of yellow rice.
1 1/2 cups chopped white onion
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

Lime wedges (optional)
How to Make It
Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add cumin, chili powder, shrimp, and garlic; sauté 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and add butter, salt, and hot sauce. Stir until the butter melts. Stir in juice and green onions. Garnish with the lime wedges, if desired.
My family really enjoyed this. We love shrimp and Tex-mex flavors. I would recommend if serving for a family of 4 like my family, buy more shrimp. I bought 1 3/4 lbs and our portion size was small. I added green peppers with the onion to add more volume and some cilantro with the green onions for flavor. Definitely will save this recipe.
Meh... This should be called border onions with some shrimp. As seems to happen every now and then with CL recipes there are just too many onions. Flavor is also sort've one dimensional and bland. Then again, this is a supposedly 15 minute dish, so I suppose one must go into it with lowered expectations. That said, I won't this again.
Needed another dish last minute for a pot luck, happened to have almost all the ingredients on hand. Delicious and so easy to prepare! Served over saffron rice. Definitely adding this to the repertoire.
The flavors in this were great. Such a simple weeknight meal. We served with the CL corn muffins with jalepeno and honey-lime butter, which I made on Sunday so we would have a quick weeknight meal on Monday. Definitely going in the recipe book.
