We made this chili lime shrimp recipe and really enjoyed it.  I think you will like it too.

Staying at home and staying healthy has been a challenge during this pandemic.  We’ve tried to behave, but being trapped with our food is so hard.  Those few ventures out to the store have also been a struggle. Determined to stick to our grocery list, but then . . . we accidentally venture down the vanilla Oreo’s aisle.  This recipe is quick, easy and healthy and has so many serving options.  Serve on top of pasta or rice, use as a salad topper, or our favorite way to serve them is as shrimp tacos.

Shrimp omelets are my favorite special treat.  I always make a couple of extra shrimp for the next morning.

Note:  This recipe is Whole 30 friendly.
