How to make Garlic Lime Shrimp
Heat Coconut Oil in a skillet. As the oil shimmers, add the Shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes (both sides).
Once cooked, remove from the skillet and set aside.
Add minced Garlic to the skillet and cook for 1-2 min or until brown and fragrant.
Add the cooked Shrimps back to the skillet. Add Lime Juice, Red Pepper Flakes, Salt and Freshly Cracked Black Pepper to it. Toss to combine.
Garnish with freshly chopped Parsley and serve!
Do not over cook the Shrimp. Cook it just for 2-3 min per side or until they turn pink-ish. Overcooking the Shrimp will make it chewy and you surely don't want that.
Use freshly squeezed Lime juice for best flavors.
Serve with rice and salad for best flavors.
- Cheese - Made it even cheesy and delicious. Add shredded Mozzarella Cheese after the Shrimp gets cooked.
- Cream Cheese & Parmesan - You can add Cream Cheese and Parmesan to the sauce to make it even creamy and delicious. Learn how to make Cream Cheese Parmesan Sauce.

You can add this while cooking the Shrimp or after you've got it out of the skillet.
Bring the sauce to a simmer. If you want you can add a teaspoon of Maple Syrup or Honey or Fruit Sweetener or Coconut Sugar to this but that's optional.
Just bring this to a simmer and pour over the cooked shrimps.
