Recipe by Emily
"Shrimp sauteed in cilantro, garlic, lime, salsa, and white wine. So simple, yet so delicious! A twist on the usual garlicky sauteed shrimp. The best shrimp recipe I have ever eaten. Served with tortillas or over rice."

1 1/2 pounds
shrimp, tails removed
fresh cilantro, chopped, or to taste, divided
yellow onion, chopped
garlic, chopped, or more to taste
red bell pepper, finely chopped
red chile pepper, pureed
lemon juice, or to taste
lime juice, or to taste
Did all of the prep work early in the day, so all that needed to be done this evening was to sauté the onions and garlic, add the salsa mixture, heat and then add the shrimp…my kind d of meal. Used a red jalapeno instead of a red chile pepper (what I had on hand) which gave a lick kick of heat and added more lime juice. Delicious, easy, full of fresh flavor and tender shrimp, thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely will be made again.
