AJ Petitti feels as comfortable in the kitchen as he does in the garden and this morning he shared one of his favorite recipes with Fox 8's Stefani Schaefer. AJ used fresh cilantro from the Fox 8 Petitti Garden in this recipe and encourages everyone to make the most of the fresh herbs, produce and fruits coming out of their gardens this time of year.

1 lb. de-veined shrimp (fresh or frozen, but not pre-cooked)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 whole lime, juiced
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and cracked pepper
1 jalepeno finely chopped (optional)
Mix all ingredients together and marinate the shrimp for about 20 minutes.
Cook in a cast iron skillet or on the grill until the shrimp.
