5 servings (serving size: about 4 ounces shrimp)

These vividly seasoned shrimp are great on their own, served atop pasta, or as part of a tapas tray.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle shrimp with sugar and salt. Combine chili powder, cumin, coriander, and oregano. Lightly coat shrimp with spice mixture.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil and half of shrimp; sauté 4 minutes or until done. Remove from pan. Repeat procedure with 1 teaspoon oil and remaining shrimp. Place shrimp on a platter; drizzle remaining 2 1/2 teaspoons oil over shrimp. Serve with lime wedges.

This recipe tasted great! I used xylitol instead of sugar to keep it clean too, just like the other reviewer. I also used more shrimp than it called for and the spices were plenty. It was quick and easy. Perfect if you're busy and on the run!

I hate to be the one person who doesn't like a recipe, but it just didn't do it for me. I only had half pound of shrimp and the spices smelled amazing, but the final product just didn't taste amazing. (mainly this is so if i read the reviews i'll know not to make it for me again!)
