Panko-coated pan-fried shrimp with a delicious lime butter that is tasty enough but does not overpower the flavors of the shrimp. Serve over a mixed greens salad or with angel hair pasta with cream sauce and a fresh vegetable for a larger meal.

4.3.18 This was absolutely delicious! I’d bought a couple pounds of big frozen Argentinian Red Shrimp on sale at Publix last week for $7.99/lb, and they are simply amazing. This recipe is so easy, the shrimp were so tender and perfectly cooked, the lime-butter sauce so bright and refreshing, it’s hard to put into words how much we enjoyed them. Served with coconut rice, grilled pineapple drizzled with a plum glaze, and a wedge of fresh lime to squeeze over the shrimp. This was outstanding, thank you Miss Amy for sharing your recipe, going into my Favorites folder!***UPDATE 6.12.18: A sauce that we like with these shrimp is Hot and Sweet Dipping Sauce from this site.
