This tasty marinade—hot but not punishing—is so easy and so flavorful that it will quickly make its way into your regular rotation. Shrimp is marinated with garlic, fresh lime juice, and jalapeño chile peppers, then seared in a skillet until fully cooked through.

This was totally delicious and surprisingly not too hot-spicy without burning--and the extra lime juice squeezed over the cooked shrimp adds a great flavor

Love, love, love this recipe!! I cooked the shrimp over very high heat at the end giving the jalapeno and garlic a real nice crisp. Even my nine year old, who is a VERY picky eater, couldn't get enough of the shrimp! No one could believe that there wasn't any butter in this recipe... so DELISH!!!
