Cilantro-Lime Shrimp

Confession…

I’m not a big shrimp fan – – mostly because of the texture

(Actually, I’m not really into seafood, in general, if I’m being totally honest. It’s just so “fishy,” ya know?!)

So the fact that I enjoy this dish, really says something about its appeal. LOL!  

Plus, “score” for Chad because he likes shrimp…but I never cook it because, as I mentioned…not a fan. 

Well, we made this dish last week …and we’re making it again this week, so I guess I’m officially on the “shrimp train” now. (Luckily for Chad! Ha!)

If you like lime and cilantro (and cumin), you’ve got to try this dish! If you like shrimp, that probably helps, too. But, apparently, that’s not necessary! Hee, hee!
