Pan-Fried Shrimp

I prefer shrimp on the BBQ, but when the weather isn’t very desirable, I find other ways to cook this seafood that the whole family loves. Here’s one recipe you might enjoy.


1 lb. medium to large shrimp (I often use precooked)
4 - 6 garlic cloves, minced (depends how spicy you want it)
1 tbsp olive oil (I use canola)
½ tsp crushed pepper flakes (I usually add more to make it spicier)
Pinch of paprika
Pinch of cumin (optional)
Salt (optional; the other spices add enough flavour)


- Thaw the shrimp if frozen; shell and devein if not using precooked.

- Heat oil in medium heat and add garlic and spices, except for salt. Sauté for about two minutes; add shrimp.

- Season shrimp with salt (if using) and cook until shrimp is ready (takes just a few minutes, 2 – 4). Make sure not to overcook.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
