What Ingredients Will You Need For Chili’s Spicy Garlic And Lime Shrimp?

  • Salt- Salt is the basic seasoning ingredient in the spice blend. Add about a three-fourths teaspoon of salt to the spice blend for this recipe.

  • Cayenne pepper- To add more heat to the shrimp, add a one-fourth teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the spice blend. 
  • Parsley flakes- Parsley adds a herbal and earthy flavor. Use a one-fourth teaspoon of dry parsley flakes to the spice blend. 
  • Garlic Powder- Garlic adds a basic seasoning flavor to the shrimp. Add a one-fourth teaspoon of garlic powder to the spice blend for this recipe. 
  • Paprika- If you want the shrimp to be spicy hot, don’t forget to add paprika to the spice blend. I’ve used a one-fourth teaspoon of paprika for the shrimp. 
  • Thyme- Add dried thyme to have an aromatic flavor in the shrimp.

  • Butter- Cook the shrimp in two tablespoons of butter. Butter caramelizes the spices over the shrimp and adds more flavor to it. 
  • Garlic Clove- Add a garlic clove to the butter in the pan to cook the shrimp in garlic-flavored butter. 
  • Shrimp- Shrimp is the soul of this recipe. I’ve used about one pound or 24 fresh large peeled shrimp for this recipe.
