Fresh fruit and shrimp add a burst of freshness to your appetizer buffet. The lime-and-cilantro marinade gives the seafood a flavorful punch.
Thaw the shrimp, if frozen. Rinse shrimp; pat dry. In a medium bowl, stir together the lime peel, lime juice, cooking oil, fresh cilantro or parsley, jalapeno pepper, and garlic. Add the shrimp and toss to coat.
Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or up to 3 hours, stirring the mixture twice.
To serve, drain shrimp and discard marinade. If you like, thread shrimp onto skewers. Arrange on lettuce-lined plate with fruit. Serve with toothpicks. Makes 6 appetizer servings.
