    Absolutely delicious. Light and fresh! My husband asked me to make this again.

    This recipe is FABULOUS! I made it last night for dinner and all 5 kids (ages 10 – 20) gave it a thumbs up. It is my new go-to easy, weekday recipe. So simple and fast. I served with orzo because that’s what I had in the pantry but it would be great with rice or linguini too. Thanks Elise!

    Elise…your recipes NEVER fail me. I have subscribed for years, and I love your ‘taste’ in food! (and your mom and dad are FAB too).

    I just used this recipe for the shrimp marinade, that I subsequently grilled. My hubs was so happy with his Father’s Day lunch! DELICIOUS Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos!

    I grilled some corn and cut it from the cob, shredded some cabbage, diced a red onion, made a lime cilantro dressing, and put these babies in a grilled tortilla…so yummo!

    (I also made your turkey burgers last night…with the basil and oregano?…OMGoodness!!! So wonderful).

    Thanks again,

    This was tasty and quick (except for cleaning the shrimp–that took about 45 minutes, as this shrimp needed cleaning on both sides).


    1. The peppers started burning within about 15-20 seconds. Move quickly with the next step (putting in the shrimp).
    2. Definitely put in 2 tbs of lime juice.
    3. Don’t inhale the fumes during cooking–the serrano pepper burns.
    4. I served it with herb linguini. If you’re doing something similar, I recommend adding some sautéed cherry tomatoes to give it some moisture. I will do that next time.
