Mexican Shrimp Scampi

Our wedding anniversary is always an excuse for eating Mexican food, since that is where we went on our honeymoon. Shrimp was big at the west coast spot we choose, so they usually figure into the meal too. This was this year's main course. (Only because I found the recipe for shrimp marinated in margarita mix too late)

2 T Olive Oil
2 ea Garlic,Minced
1 lb Shrimp,Peeled
1/2 c White Wine
1/4 c Lime Juice
1 c Tomatoes,Chopped
1/4 c Fresh Cilantro

In a large skillet, heat oil and garlic. Cook and stir until garlic begins to turn brown. Add shrimp. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until shrimp begin to turn pink. Add wine, scraping and deglazing pan. Cook for 2 more minutes. Add line juice and tomatoes and cook until bubbly. Sprinkle with cilantro.
