I love the simplicity of this shrimp recipe. It's packed full of chili, garlic, and lime flavor... and it takes just a few minutes to prepare on the stovetop, which makes it great for busy weeknights or hot summer days.

This recipe comes together really fast so start by getting all your herbs and spices ready.  Clockwise from the top:  black pepper, onion powder, paprika, dried parsley, garlic powder, chili powder, and kosher salt.

You'll also need some minced garlic and fresh lime juice.

Start by heating some vegetable oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Just before the shrimp is done, add lime juice and finish cooking. 

If you squeeze your limes with a citrus squeezer (and I highly recommend you do), be sure to put the cut lime in the squeezer cut-side-down.  It seems counter-intuitive, but that's how they work best.  You'll be amazed how much more juice you'll get than if you used a reamer or squeezed it by hand.
