  • Stir the lime juice, lime zest, and garlic in a 2-quart shallow, nonmetallic baking dish or a gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning the shrimp over several times during the marinating time.

  • Heat the broth in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Add the pepper and onion and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.

  • Reduce the heat to medium. Add the shrimp and marinade to the saucepan and heat to a boil. Cook until the shrimp are cooked through. Stir in the cilantro.

  • Divide the lettuce, tomatoes and shrimp mixture among 4 serving plates. Season with the black pepper.

Made as written except that I pulled the onion and bell out as the shrimp went in and sauteed them in a skillet until they got good and caramelized for that extra depth of flavor. This is a perfect meal for hot summer nights! Read More

I was looking for an exciting new salad recipe - this is not it. I thought the flavor was very "mundane" for the work that went into the preparation. Read More

We are fond of shrimp salads so I thought I would give this recipe a try. I made it as written. We both thought the lack of flavor was disappointing. I probably will not make this recipe again. Read More
