Simple Wild Shrimp Recipe!

ย I love shrimp, always have. There is so many amazing recipes out there but I like to keep mine very simple ๐Ÿ™‚ I like things to be easy and colorful. I want to share my easy peasy recipe that I can make in under 5 min ๐Ÿ™‚


  • wild shrimp is best
  • salt
  • pepper
  • lime or lime juice
  • garlic
  • pepper flakes
  • parsley

All I do is remove the shrimp the night before from the freezer and place it in the fridge. Next morning I just simply rinse it off and put it in a ziplock bag to marinate. For my marinade I use salt, pepper and lime juice. Just a squeeze of 1/2 a lime will do ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s it. I will let it marinade in the fridge all day until it’s time for dinner.


Heat olive oil or butter in a heavy skillet over high heat until its hot. Place shrimp in an even layer on the bottom of the pan and cook for 1 minute without stirring.

Stir in garlic and red pepper flakes (optional) cook and stir 1 minute. Feel free to add some more lime juice and about 1 tbs of fresh or dried parsley.

Cook additional 1 minute ๐Ÿ™‚ Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl. Serve immediately ๐Ÿ™‚
