Secret Shrimp


This recipe has become a weekly repeat in my house. Shrimp recipes are best kept super simple. Just
need the right texture, big flavors and fast cooking.

Ingredients:
1 pound large shrimp peeled and cleaned
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon old Bay seasoning in
2 teaspoon smoked paprika
3 tablespoons olive oil

Start by rinsing the shrimp in a strainer then place the shrimp in a large bowl. In a separate smaller bowl mix the smoked paprika, old bay and cornstarch together. Add the seasoning mix to the shrimp slowly continuously mixing as you go. Make sure to cook all the shrimp evenly in the process. Now, add the olive oil to a large flat pan and begin to heat. Next, gently place each shrimp on the pan being careful not to let the olive oil splash. Cook the first side for about a minute or two and then flip cooking the other side for about another minute. Once the shrimp are pink and starting to brown they are done, it’s important not to over cook the shrimp. Remove from heat and enjoy!
