  • I usually do shrimp cocktail or shrimp scampi can use fresh garlic, but if you're lazy like me just use the prechopped garlic with some REAL butter saute it in a pan and serve over rice or noodles...ta-da!!!

  • Two:
    Boil for 7 minutes in SALTY water with bag of crab seasoning. Peel, de-vein, layer on platter, sprinkle with black pepper and squeeze fresh lemon juice over it. Cover with a wet papertowel, chill. Makes a perfect Shrimp Cocktail.

    Mix bbq sauce, Tony's seasoning, beer, liquid smoke and grape jam, salt and pepper (all to taste). Make a foil bowl, put shrimp (already peeled and de-veined) into foil bowl, pour sauce over it. Place on hot grill until the mixture boils for about 5 minutes. Pour off sauce (save it for dipping if you want). Rinse off shrimp in in hot water (or cold if you like your shrimp cold) water. Eat. ~ this recipe has a wonderful smoky flavor - perfect for a shrimp, steak & baked potato dinner.

  • So easy and so good:

    Warm some olive oil in a pan with a generous amount of Emmeril's Essence (you can make this spice blend yourself if you don't have, the recipe is all over the internet...), let it cool then marinate the shrimp in it....grill them on skewers or sautee them in a pan. They are delicious with a little kick, everyone seems to rave about them when I make them.

  • I'll add that they are great as an appetizer as is, or serve with salad or rice for a meal.

  • I used to love this in spain. You take a very good quality olive oil, fill the bottom of the skillet about half inch deep with olive oil. Add in some small dried peppers (spicy ones), or dried pepper flakes if you don't have the whole dried peppers, and a clove of garlic sliced. Heat the oil til very hot. Add in small-medium shrimp and cook just til the shrimp is done, about 2-4 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp. Serve in bowls with a little of the spicy oil in the bottom, with a crusty bread for dipping in the oil. It's very good.
