There’s just something about how the lime juice compliments the cilantro in this dish. I know there are some cilantro haters out there, and I just don’t understand it!! I read an article once that said you’re either obsessed with cilantro and want it on EVERYTHING, or you think it tastes like soap. Is that true? Do you haters find it to taste like a Dove bar? Not the chocolate kind. Maybe I just like the taste of soap??? I have no idea…I just know I love it so much. Favorite herb alert. And paired with the tart citrus…perfection. I just can’t. If loving cilantro is wrong, I don’t want to be right. (<—That would be my real housewives tag line if I had one)

I am in the cilantro club with you! You can be President and I'll be your Veep.

Sooooo... I'm one of those cilantro haters. It tastes like the kind of Dove bar you don't want to eat, and a little bit of it in a dish can ruin the entire thing for me. It makes me sad because these photos are GORGEOUS, and I'm fairly positive I would love everything going on in this dish if I wasn't a person who has this weird genetic thing where cilantro tastes awful to me. That said, my husband is totally into cilantro, and he'd be SO happy to come home to this shrimp scampi! So I'm adding it to my list of things to surprise him with. Because I'm occasionally nice like that. ;)

Love the cilantro, but is that much butter really healthy????? I like butter and am not fat phobic, but I do watch my calories - one of those things I have to do now that I am older. Wish I could get my husband to eat shrimp that aren't breaded and deep fried. So I'm thinking I could try this with chicken, perhaps.

I'm a cilantro loverrrrr... My goodness this tiny little leaf just takes food to the next level..

You had me at one-pan, and I absolutely love cilantro. I add it to almost anything. One of my kids hates it, and I just don't get it. Can't wait to try this!

Cilantro Lime is the best way to have shrimp!

I have to admit that I am not a cilantro fan, but I can handle it in very small doses, lol. ;) That being said, this dish does look amazing, and I love how quick it can be on the dinner table.

I just love everything about this dish. Shrimp is such a wonderful way to enjoy seafood because it cooks so fast and I love your combination of lime and cilantro. Great flavors, that go wonderfully together. I also love your photos and the pan you've chosen for this dish. You are so lucky to have a green skillet :) It's perfect for this dish!
