Quick ‘n Spicy Shrimp

 Quick ‘n Spicy Shrimp

Whether cooking inside your RV or outside on a grill or portable stovetop, this simple recipe is delicious as an appetizer or served on top of a salad or serve as a main dish or a side!  I purchased frozen Red Argentinian Shrimp for this dish, they are huge and have a great firm consistency. 

I serve 4 shrimps per person.  Feel free to increase or decrease quantities to fit your needs.

Serves 2


8                      large raw shrimp in their shells, remove black vein from in the shrimp 

2 tbsp              vegetable oil

few dashes      Tapatio' (or other) hot sauce


  1.  Use fresh or defrosted large raw shrimps for this dish.  Remove the outer black vein that runs along the mid portion of the        back portion of each shrimp.  Rinse the shrimp and set aside.
  2.  Heat a grill pan with the oil over medium/high heat.
  3.  Add shrimp to the grill pan once the pan is hot.  Cook and turn the shrimp until the it reaches 145 degrees and the inner mid portion of the shrimp is opaque and no longer translucent.  Check with an internal thermometer.  Cooking time is approximately 5 minutes but the time varies with the size of the shrimp and the temperature of the raw shrimp (cold vs. room temperature).  *  I always use a digital thermometer when cooking.
  4.  Add a few dashes of hot sauce, turn the shrimp to coat both sides with the sauce, then serve.
