Shrimp with cilantro and lemon

This is a very simple recipe for shrimps, it is tasty if you like cilantro. Now that the weather if getting warmer (at least for us living in Southern California) I like to make a nice salad and top it with these shrimps. It sure makes a great meal and it is very healthy…shrimps are low in fat ;-).

Ingredients:

1 lb of shrimp, clean and deveined
2 garlic clove finely chopped
½ lemon, juice freshly squeezed
½ bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon cooking wine
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil

Method:

Mix all the ingredients except the cilantro. In a pan heat the olive oil and fry the shrimps both side, when the shrimps are done add the cilantro and remove from the heat. Serve the shrimps on top of a green salad of your choice.
