Need an easy and delicious dinner for tonight? This is one of our favorite meals when we want “something good” but I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. (Yes, sometimes when I ask the what-do-you-want-for-dinner question, the answer is “something good”!) It is scrumptious and so incredibly easy to prepare. Just make sure to use the larger shrimp (my favorite are the Key West Pink Shrimp) and you can’t go wrong. If you really want to save some time, buy the frozen raw shrimp that are already shelled and deveined.
Here’s how you put it together:
Melt 1/4 cup unsalted butter in nonstick skillet – add 1 teaspoon minced garlic. Cook over medium heat until the garlic is heated through and sizzling.
Add one pound shrimp – raw, shelled, deveined. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon Seafood Magic seasoning by Chef Paul Prudhomme.
Cook on medium heat until the shrimp are done, turning once. They will cook quickly. How do you tell when they’re done? The tell-tale sign of cooked shrimp is that it has turned from watery-looking and translucent to bright pink and white. They cook rather quickly – don’t overcook or the shrimp will be tough.
Squeeze the juice from a fresh lime over the shrimp. Top with fresh grated Parmesan cheese, fresh parsley and a sprinkling of sweet paprika. Serve over rice or pasta.
So delicious! It’s definitely “something good”.
