What’s your easiest, best, way to cook shrimp?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a go to, super simple not more than 2 or 3 ingredient way to cook shrimp as a quick protein source?   Something versatile that you could eat on a hot meal or throw in a salad?  

Referring to raw shrimp but deveined and tail off.  

Also, do you cook them from frozen or always thaw?  

Thank you so much!

This article has good instructions, just obviously sub ghee or clarified butter or olive oil where it mentions butter:  https://www.thekitchn.com/how-to-quickly-cook-shrimp-on-the-stovetop-cooking-lessons-from-the-kitchn-214397 -- it even mentions how to thaw them quickly, I would do that rather than cooking from frozen.

I just do salt and pepper and then throw the in a frying pan with clarified butter, about 2-3 minutes on each side (a little more or less depending on the size).  I always cook them thawed.  They are so simple but delicious and easy to throw on a salad or with a side of veggies and sweet potato.  Shrimp this way (or salmon cooked the same way) are staples of mine on nights when there is no time to make a more involved meal!

Garlic and ghee! Plus some salt and pepper. I always thaw first, they can overcook if you try to cook from frozen. Easiest way to thaw them fast is throw them in a colander under cold running water, then dry them on a paper towel when they're thawed. It only takes a few minutes.

Garlic, 2 T coconut oil - saute and then add chopped artichokes.  Add capers and/or grape tomatoes.  Serve over spinach. Delish!
