Favorite shrimp recipe?

I'm looking for a good shrimp recipe, I have a bag of frozen cooked shrimp that needs used. I'm usually not a fan of seafood lol, but I do like shrimp sometimes. I had a shrimp dinner at cheesecake factory with pasta and I believe lemon that was really good so something like that might work. I have a recipe for orzo pasta lemon feta and shrimp but my husband hates it lol. Any suggestions?

  • Butter-Garlic Shrimp is delicious.
    Thaw Shrimp. The way I do it is I cut open the bag and run hot water down into the bag. Let it sit there for a few minutes.
    In a large fry pan add oil, butter, and preminced garlic (fresh is fine, but I use preminced from the produce section). Let simmer for a minute or two. (until butter is melted. Add shrimp and cover. Let simmer (2-3 setting) for about five-10 minutes.

    Butter/oil/garlic mixture should create a sauce that slightly covers shrimp while simmering.

    Have steamed veggies and pasta on the side.

  • 3.Stir tomatoes, wine, parsley, and basil into the skillet. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until liquid is reduced by half, 8 to 12 minutes. Add shrimp, and continue cooking until the shrimp are heated through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve the shrimp mixture over the pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
