How to Cook Shrimp


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.


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.
