What You Need

  • 1 lime
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound fresh large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 3/4 cup Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Chicken Stock
  • 1 medium orange or red pepper, cut into 2-inch-long strips (about 1 1/2 cups)

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 4 cups romaine lettuce or Iceberg lettuce torn into bite-sized pieces

Instructions

  1. Grate 2 teaspoons zest and squeeze 1 tablespoon juice from the lime.

  3. Heat the broth in a 2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Add the pepper and onion and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the shrimp and marinade to the saucepan and heat to a boil. Cook until the shrimp are cooked through. Stir in the cilantro.
  5. Divide the lettuce, tomatoes and shrimp mixture among 4 serving plates. Season with the black pepper.
