Ten Minute Sweet and Spicy Shrimp #SundaySupper

by lisa on April 9, 2017 · 15 comments

This week the Sunday Supper gang is all about seafood recipes and I chose to make some shrimp. So let’s hear it for seafood!

You could probably say I’m a shrimp hoarder. At any given time I have three bags in my freezer. I always get them peeled and deveined. Why would I want to do that myself?  When I have a shrimp craving or just need a really quick dinner, I throw a bag in a colander and run some cold water over them. They are defrosted in just a few minutes and they cook even quicker. There are so many ways to cook them just like Forest Gump had suggested.  My favorite way is cooking them in ten minutes and using my cast iron pan. Lately I like to cook everything in my cast iron pan.

Many would consider this dish an appetizer but add some steamed broccoli and brown rice to make it a meal. However you serve them is fine but just know they are not going to last long. They also go great with beer. And plenty of napkins! You don’t want any of that sauce on your face.

This is the type of dish that cooks quicker than you can call your family or friends to the table. The shrimp are quickly seared and the sauce simmers in the pan for a few minutes until is thickens a little. Can cooking be any easier?

Summer is on it’s way and that’s the perfect time for seafood. Take a look at all the recipes below and pick out your favorites to make. Thank you Claire of Sprinkles and Sprouts for hosting this event!
