Cilantro and Shrimp

I don't know about you but I seriously love cilantro!!  It's almost equal to the love I have for quinoa.  I know many people who can't stand the taste of cilantro, but honestly you guys are missing out.  The flavor is Spring-like, fresh, and clean.  It's really great on seafood.  Today I am sharing with you a recipe for broiled shrimp with cilantro.

Broiled Shrimp with Cilantro
1 bunch cilantro
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup olive oil
zest of one lemon
crushed red pepper (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 pound shrimp (cleaned and de-veined)

In a mini food processor blend all the ingredients except the shrimp together.  Pour the cilantro mixture over the shrimp in a bowl or baggie and let marinade for 30 minutes in the fridge.   When ready to cook, preheat broiler on high.  Place shrimp on a baking sheet and broil in the oven for about 4 minutes on each side.  When shrimp turns pink and is firm to the touch it is cooked through.
