Shrimp Burritos

My BF wanted me to try to make a mexican dish with shrimp. So I opted for shrimp burritos. They turned out pretty good. I would just make the rice a little different next time.

Shrimp Burritos

15-20 shrimp
1 tbsp butter
3-4 tbsp chopped onions
splash of lemon juice
light sprinkling of garlic powder and cilantro

First, prepare the rice. I made mine like a Chipolte knock-off. Boil rice with a dash of salt, a splash of lime juice and a generous sprinkling of cilantro. When the rice is almost done, melt the butter on a frying pan and saute the onions until they are translucent. I liked mine fairly browned. Add the shrimp, lemon juice, garlic powder and cilantro. Cook until shrimp are pink. I made my slightly browned. Remove from heat and wait for them to cool a little. Cut into little pieces.

Serve the shrimp and onions with your favorite burrito toppings. We had black beans, salsa verde with corn, sour cream and shredded cheese.

Makes roughly 4 medium sized burritos.
They were yummy :)

Yay, a new recipe. We are trying to mix up the grocery list so this will work. Well, sort of! Den wants healthy food and me not so much. I bet this is a fight that I will win.
Have a great weekend!

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I love your blog! You do everything I like to do too. So really, it doesn't look like you are that terrified in the kitchen because you seem to make amazing things.
And as far as freezer cooking - it takes me about 20 minutes a day for a week or so to get this together. I don't just sit for hours I just do a little here and there and set a deadline for myself. It has worked well so far.
