  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

To prepare the marinade, mix the lime juice, olive oil, ground cumin and salt together. Put the shrimp in a non reactive bowl and pour the marinade so that it completely covers the shrimp. Light the grill. After it is hot, grill the shrimp for three minutes or until they turn pink. To finish the dish, sprinkle the Cotija over the shrimp and garnish with parsley.
