Super Shrimple

super simple spicy shrimp

Here’s an incredibly simple recipe for spicy, saucy shrimp. No joke, it can be on your plate in less than 10 minutes. That’s not counting the time it takes you to peel and devein your shrimp, of course. It goes great with just some crusty bread, which is perfect for soaking up the sauce. But it would also be nice served with rice, or even as a tasty appetizer.

Chili-Lime Shrimp
– 15 shrimp, peeled & deveined
– ½ cup of diced scallions, plus more for garnish
– 1 teaspoon of chili powder
– Juice from 1 lime (about 3 tablespoons)
– 1 to 2 tablespoons of butter, softened
– Cracked red pepper
– Salt and pepper
– Olive oil

Heat a skillet with a little olive oil over medium heat. Add the scallions and cook, stirring frequently, about 1 minute. Add the shrimp and chili powder, and cook about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Off the heat stir in the lime juice and butter. Season to taste with cracked red pepper, salt and pepper. Plate and top with additional scallions.

    Looks awesome. Just completed something similar with three ingredients. Lime, garlic and coriander. Cooked on the BBQ. Will post in the next couple of weeks. Delicious.

    Definitely my kind of meal–quick to prepare! I’ve been on a shrimp kick lately, which I still find odd, considering I didn’t start eating it until a year or so ago (weird, I know). Now I just can’t get enough. Holding on to this recipe!

  4. I never tire of your silly puns. This isn’t something I’d tire of either. Looks wonderful.

  5. Thanks for reminding me of this one! Love the shrimp spicy!
