Healthy Recipe – Grilled Shrimp with Jalapeno-Cilantro Salsa

Grilled Shrimp with Jalapeno-Cilantro Salsa

Here’s a hot & spicy recipe for grilled shrimp – not only a great source of protein, but this recipe also gives you a little bit of healthy fat from the olive oil. Serve with your favorite steamed veggies!


  • 2 lb. shrimp – peeled
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1c chopped garlic – peeled and lightly crushed
  • 1 tbsp peeled and roughly chopped ginger
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, stemmed & seeded, and roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp Dried red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh lime juice from one lime
  • Salt & Pepper to taste.

Mix the cilantro, garlic, ginger, pepper, red pepper flakes and oil in a blender – puree until smooth, adding oil to keep things from getting too gooped up. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides as needed. Move to a bowl, and add salt & pepper. Thin the mixture with the lime juice. You can either use immediately, or cover & store in the refrigerator for up to a day (but bring back to room temperature before serving).Grill the shrimp until done, serving immediately with the salsa.

Makes 4 servings.
