Carne Asada Skirt Steak

Carne Asada Marinated Shrimp

  • 1-pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined, preferably leaving the tails on
  • 1/3 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/4 cup Rob’s Carne Asada organic seasoning


Carne Asada Skirt Steak

  1. Marinate skirt steak for 8 hours (preferably), but at least 2 hours if in a hurry – keep refrigerated until ready to cook (my preferred method for skirt steak to ensure a good char while keeping this thinner cut to medium rare).
  2. Bring grill to high heat and cook to desired doneness – I find at extremely high heats, 2 min per side (or 1 min x 4 for “X-patterned grill mark”s) gives a nice medium rare to medium doneness – skirt steak does not like to be well done! Top with Cotija cheese and serve.

Marinated Shrimp Asada

  1. Marinate shrimp for 1 hour – any longer and the citrus from the limes will begin to “cook” the shrimp.
  2. Grill or pan sear until cooked through – they cook fast! Top with Cotija cheese and serve.
