    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice
    • 1 shallot, minced

    • 2 pounds raw shrimp, deveined and shelled

In a large bowl, add the marinade ingredients and mix well. Add the shrimp and toss to combine so they’re well coated.

Mist a large skillet with olive oil spray and warm over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 of the shrimp to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes on one side, undisturbed. Then, flip and cook another 2 minutes or until shrimp is cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Reapply oil spray, add the second batch of shrimp and repeat cooking process.
