Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Okay...so you know I have to cook this kind of stuff while IT Guy is out of the house because he's a spoiled sport and won't eat seafood. He really doesn't know what he's missing because this was gooooooooooooooood! I served mine over rice but if you've just got a hankerin' for shrimp by itself then that's what you should do. Eat it and don't be shy! I loved this over rice but serving it over pasta would work. Delicious and easy!!!

Cilantro Lime Rice

1 pound shrimp ~ cleaned, deveined, patted dry
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 cloves garlic ~ minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1 half of a lime
3 - 4 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro

In a small bowl, combine the shrimp, cumin and salt and pepper.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the olive oil then add the seasoned shrimp.

Cook shrimp for 3 - 5 minutes, turning often, until done.

Squeeze lime over shrimp, add chopped cilantro then stir to combine.

Serve alone or over pasta or rice.

Here's all you need.
