What You'll Need
  • 1/4 cup
    2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • zest of 1/2 a lemon
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/4 cup blanched almonds

  • 2 small red chiles, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

  1. In a food processor, combine ¼ cup olive oil, cilantro, parsley, lemon juice, lemon zest, almonds, garlic, chiles, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Pulse until ingredients form a uniform mixture, not quite a paste but close. If mixture feels too dry, add a little more olive oil.
  2. In a large bowl, toss shrimp with spicy herb mixture.
  3. In a medium saucepan, heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add shrimp and cook until just pink, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Serve shrimp over rice, tabbouleh, greens, or other sides.
