Pioneer Woman's Chimichurri Shrimp

Yum!  These were super good, and all of us gave them a 9.  We found the recipe in the Pioneer Woman's newest cookbook, and we will have these again.  We split this into four servings, and each serving was 263 calories.  Easy, fresh, and really delicious, these are worth trying soon!

1/2 bunch cilantro leaves
1/4buch flat-leaf parsley leaves
3 garlic cloves
2 limes, juiced
1/2 t cumin
1 dash cayenne pepper
1/2 t salt
1/4 c olive oil
1 lb shrimp
1/2 T olive oil

In a food processor, process the cilantro, parsley, lime juice,cumin, cayenne and salt.  Cover and begin processing, then add in the oil in a slow stream, processing until smooth.  Drizzle half of the sauce, reserving the other half, over the peeled and deveined shrimp, stir, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Heat the olive oil in a pan, then cook the shrimp until done.  Serve with the reserved chimichurri sauce.
