This cilantro lime shrimp microgreens recipe can be prepared as a light and flavorful appetizer or as the main ingredient for shrimp tacos. Our cilantro microgreens have the fresh, clean flavor profile of standard cilantro, but because we leave our husk intact, our microgreens deliver an aromatic coriander crunch.
Why do we love cilantro microgreens? Cilantro is noted for being perhaps one of the oldest herbs used by mankind, its use dating back to nearly 5000 years. The cilantro plant offers antioxidants along with vitamins K and C and minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium. Infinite Harvest’s microgreens have even more microgreens benefits and yield up to 40 times the nutritional value of a mature plant.
- 1 pound large shrimp
- 1 garlic clove (minced)*
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 2 tbs fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup micro cilantro, chopped
- *can substitute taco seasonings for all seasonings in a pinch
Mix the shrimp with the seasonings (garlic, cumin, cayenne, salt). Add shrimp to a skillet with olive oil and toss for 1-2 minutes on medium heat, until shrimp are cooked through. Add the lime juice and mix in the chopped micro cilantro. Serve as a light stand-alone dish or use as a basis for shrimp tacos.
