Pan-seared Shrimp
Pan-seared Shrimp

I don’t often crave meat, poultry, fish, or crustaceans and I’d really never learned to cook anything other than ground beef or ground turkey of this food category in the past. Cooking *meats* scared me – didn’t want to get sick from undercooking or have it impossible to chew due to overcooking… I’d always left its cooking to my more chef-like hubby.

But, this was both of our first time making shrimp 🦐 at home. Neither of us had ever braved it with any method before…

It’s pretty much perfect and cooks SO quickly!

Definitely a kick to this one due to the crushed red pepper!!! Hubby chose to take a break halfway thru due to the spice the first time we ate it – I cut the amount of red pepper moving forward (as reflected in recipe below). 🔥

I chose steamed Brussels sprouts instead of the more common rice or pasta accompaniment to keep it low carb. And served with Cheddar Bay Biscuits for my boys.

Pan-Seared Shrimp Recipe

  1. Heat 1 Tbsp EVOO in large skillet over high heat on stovetop, until smoking.
  2. Meanwhile, toss 1 lb shrimp with 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1/8 tsp red pepper. I use a gallon-size Ziplock bag for this step.
  3. Add seasoned shrimp to pan, in single layer, and cook until edges turn pink (about 1 min).
  4. Stir/flip shrimp and cook for about 30 secs more, until all shrimp is opaque except for the centers.
  5. Remove from heat, and toss with 6 Tbsp parsley in skillet.
  6. Cover skillet, and let shrimp stand for 1 min, until cooked through.
  7. Serve with lemon wedges for each person to drizzle with lemon juice as desired.
