Sauteed Argentine Pink Shrimp

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (2-3 limes)
Salt and fresh cracked pepper
1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced (3-4 cloves)
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper, if desired
In a large saute pan, over medium heat, melt butter with olive oil until butter is foamy. Add in the shrimp and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until slightly firm. Add in cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper, fresh garlic and crushed red pepper. Toss all ingredients together and serve over couscous, quinoa or rice, or alongside a leafy green salad. A fast and delicious summertime entree – great cold over leafy greens the next day for lunch, too! Serves 4.
