Ingredients

  • 16 large shrimp, uncooked, deveined
  • 3 large limes
  • 2 cloves garlic,
    crushed and peeled
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp
    fresh cilantro, cleaned and chopped
  • 10 medium cherry tomatoes, rinsed and dried

  3. Place the shrimp in a medium bowl and pour the cilantro lime marinade over the shrimp.
  4. Let the shrimp marinate for 10 to 15 minutes in the refrigerator (do not let them
    marinate for more than 30 minutes as the acid of the juice will alter the texture
    of the shrimp).

    are just cooked through.
