Combine the chili powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, brown sugar, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Dump the mixture over the shrimp and mix well. Set aside to marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer and cook for 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes.
Add the garlic, stir, and cook for 30 seconds. Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges to serve.
- If you use pre-cooked shrimp, cook only for 30 seconds on each side as to not over-cook the shrimp.
- Allow frozen shrimp to thaw fully before cooking.
