Chimichurri Shrimp

If you ask me what one of my favorite ingredients is, I would say cilantro! Therefore I love chimichurri sauce! This recipe is from Pioneer Woman. You can use the sauce on chicken, beef, or fish. I also loved mixing it into rice.

Chimichurri Shrimp
1/2 bunch cilantro (stems removed)
1/4 bunch parsley (stems removed)
2 garlic cloves
juice of 1/5 limes
1/2 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil

1 pound shrimp
corn tortillas

Place all the chimichurri ingredients into a blender or food processor.
Blend until smooth.

Pour half of the sauce in a bowl and mix the other half in with the shrimp to marinate for at least 2 hours.
Heat a heavy skillet on high and cook the shrimp for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly.

Serve the shrimp with the remaining sauce, I made them into tacos with corn tortillas and avocado.
Everything on this plate is so delicious, it makes me happy! Cilantro lime rice, pico de gallo, peppers and onions...oh my! Yes I am Texan and yes I love Tex Mex!
