Chili Lime Shrimp from Cooking Well

These few ingredients will pack a punch of flavor!

Shrimp is always a delicious dish, but spicing it up with chili and lime turns it into the perfect entrée with a little zest and a lot of flavor. Our Marketing Specialist, Tierra Hogan, tried out Chili Lime Shrimp from our PKD cookbook, Cooking Well. Here are some of Tierra’s opinions as she made the dish:

  • Once again, I was dreading cooking, but I was pleasantly surprised by how simple making this was.
  • This recipe requires very few ingredients, making for an affordable shopping list.
  • I ate the entire pound of shrimp by myself, it was that good!

Toss the shrimp through the sauce thoroughly to get an even coating.

This recipe is light and fresh, yet leaves you satisfied. Remember to consult your doctor or dietician about what recipes and practices are best for you at your stage of PKD.
