Citrus Shrimp

Citrus Shrimp has a light sauce that is flavored by simple ingredients and served over rice and a vegetable, it makes a very satisfying dinner.

First, start with about a pound of shrimp. If you don’t have access to fresh, feel free to use frozen. Here we thawed frozen jumbo shrimp, removed the shells and deveined them.

Lightly season the shrimp with salt and pepper. It is important to season your food with each step.

Melt butter in a skillet and saute the shrimp in the butter.

Lime and Lemons

The shrimp will be done once they have turned a nice light pink. Be sure not to over cook, as shrimp will become tough and chewy – not a texture you want.

The butter, lime and lemon juices create a very nice, delicate sauce.
