  • 2 pounds jumbo shrimp, pre-cooked and frozen variety, thawed
  • 10 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red peppers (Optional if you like it spicy)
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish


  1. Be sure your shrimp are fully thawed and drained. You don’t want extra water in the pan from your shrimp.
  2. Sauté all ingredients together in a large skillet just long enough to warm the shrimp. Remember they are already cooked!
