Notes

This recipe is for basic seared shrimp. You can always add seasonings like herbs and spices to kick it up a notch.

Ingredients

  • Grapeseed oil, or other oil with a high smoke point
  • 1 Pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Heat about 1 tablespoon oil in a large sauté pan until hot; you’ll know it’s hot enough when the oil shimmers.

Sprinkle the shrimp on each side with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp to the hot pan and don’t touch. When the shrimp detaches itself from the pan and you can see some pink on the edges, flip and don’t touch again until the other side detaches itself from the pan. The whole process takes about 2 minutes.

Remove the shrimp from the pan and serve.
