I love shrimp and here’s just one more amazing shrimp recipe that super easy to make on those busy days. This one marries the flavours of Cilantro, Garlic with a generous squeeze of lime. 6oz (about 1 cup) of shrimp equals 4 weight watcher points. Add 1/2 cup of rice for an well rounded 6 point dinner.

  1. In a large bowl toss raw shrimp with pepper and a pinch of salt to season. Set aside.
  2. Add oil to a large non-stick pan and heat to medium-high.
  3. Once the oil has reach medium heat add shrimp cook on one side for about 2 mins.
  4. Turn shrimp over and add garlic and toss.
  5. Sauté another minute or two until shrimp is cooked, DO NOT overcook.
  6. Remove from heat and squeeze lime all over shrimp, then toss with cilantro.
