Green Lime Style Shrimps

READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by Annacia

I looked up Cambray onion and the majority of descriptions claim it to be baby pearl onions. A few sources say that spring onion will be a suitable sub.

This is so easy to put together and so tasty. My market was out of jumbo shrimp, so I subbed about 20 medium shrimp. I also used a diced shallot for the cambray onion. I wasn't sure what to do with the cooked lime slices and they looked kind of unappetizing, so I discarded them before adding the sour cream, and put a fresh slice on each plate. Served with a lemon-oregano flavored pasta I found at the Farmer's market. Great meal! Made for ZWT8.
