1 pound medium shrimp, peeled, deveined, tail on
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
Juice of 1 large lime
1 medium red onion, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped (about 2 tbsp)
2 medium tomatoes (about 6 ounces), chopped
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro

Place shrimp in a medium bowl. Sprinkle chili powder and cumin over them; add lime juice. Stir well, cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Sauté onions and jalapeno over medium heat until onions are softened—about 2-3 minutes. Add shrimp, chopped tomato and cilantro. Cook shrimp for three minutes, until pink and opaque, turning them occasionally. Serve over hot whole-grain rice.

Serves 4.
