directions

In blender put chiles, white onion, salt and about 3 fingers measure of lime juice. Should be watery enough to soak the shrimp and marinade for 1 hour. Add more lime juice if needed. Turn shrimp every so often to marinade all over. Shrimp will start to turn pink as they cook in the marinade. Chop/slice your vegetable garnish and add as shrimp are pink enough. Take to the table and enjoy!
