Recently, Justin and I had the pleasure of joining his parents for dinner. We are all fans of Hispanic foods, particularly anything with spice! So, it was a pleasant surprise to learn we would be eating cilantro lime, grilled shrimp tacos. Since this meal, I’ve decided this recipe tops my all-time favorites.
Tone’s® Citrus Grill
Step 1. Peel and rinse the shrimp. We used 2 lbs. of shrimp.
Step 2. Put the peeled shrimp in a large bowl or Ziplock® bag, include:
2 fresh, squeezed limes
chopped cilantro (to taste)
Marinate the shrimp in room temperature for 3 hours. (We were short on time, so our shrimp only marinated for about 45 minutes – so, I’d say 45 minute minimum.)
While the shrimp marinate, heat the grill (or your Big Green Egg®
) to 300° and prepare the dill sauce
Dill Sauce (mix 3-4 tbsp of mayonnaise, with 2 tsp of dill weed and 1 squeezed lime, ta-da!)
Step 3. Put the shrimp on the grill and let ‘em cook for about 6 minutes. (About 3 minutes on each side!) Shrimp cook quick, so watch ‘em!
Step 4. Enjoy! I included a Black Bean Salad on my taco, although everyone else ate it as a side.
Special thanks to Uncle Max for this incredible recipe!
I can’t reiterate how delicious this meal is… So I’m begging you to try it for yourself. Then, let me know what you think! Does it top your list of favorite eats?
