Spicy Salsa-Cilantro Shrimp

READY IN: 34mins
Recipe by bratty

The blend of the salsa, cilantro, and garlic are so great with the shrimp. I used hot salsa, but that's just my preference.

Don't know really what to say but "wow" comes to mind. This is a seriously spicy shrimp dish that my family thoroughly enjoyed. I also used Joe T. Garia's hot salsa. Quick, easy and packed with flavor. You done REALLY good Bratty. Oh and the name is pretty too! :0)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 20 medium shrimp, tails removed and cleaned
  • 14 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 12 cup salsa (I recommend a fresh made salsa, or a pico de galo, you don't want a soupy tomato based salsa for thi)
  • 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning mix


  1. Mix all ingredients together, in a bowl and marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat medium pan on stovetop.
  3. Cook for approximately.
  4. 4 minutes, or until shrimp are no longer pink.
  5. Do not over cook, as shrimp will be"rubbery".
