Shrimp is a versatile protein that’s used in almost every cuisine around the world. In under five minutes, you can cook shrimp to put in everything from pasta to tacos to fried rice – the possibilities are endless for these little swimmers.

Directions:

1. After shrimp is thawed and deveined (most shrimp you purchase will already be deveined), season with olive oil and your favorite spices. I like to use Cajun seasoning or simply salt and pepper.

3. Place shrimp on their side until edges start to become pink, about 3 minutes.
