Recipe: Shrimp marinated in lime juice and Dijon mustard

Recipe: Shrimp marinated in lime juice and Dijon mustard

Shrimp marinated in lime juice and Dijon mustard — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

In this recipe, the shrimp is marinated rather than served with a heavy sauce. Serve the shrimp cold with water crackers or melba toast.


Directions

In a shallow baking dish, combine the onion, lime juice, capers, mustard and hot sauce. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, add the water, vinegar, cloves and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and add the shrimp. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Drain and transfer the shrimp to the shallow dish containing the onion mixture, making sure to discard the cloves and bay leaf. Stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, about 1 hour.

To serve, divide the shrimp mixture among individual small bowls and garnish each with lime zest. Serve cold.

  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice, plus lime zest as garnish

  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
