  • Author: Lisa C. Dorsey

  • Total Time: 54 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 servings, depending on the variation 1x


Pinch Spicy Shrimp packs in a lot of bold flavor, while still letting the delicious shrimp taste shine through. It definitely has a kick, but it’s tempered enough to allow the shrimp to stand solo and spicy enough to make you take notice when paired with other foods.

It is very versatile, whether you make it part of a kabob, pair it with a salad, throw it in pasta sauce or anything else you are in the mood for.




  1. Blot shrimp dry with paper towels
  2. Mix spices in medium bowl with lid
  3. Add shrimp to spices, seal lid and shake well to coat shrimp
  4. Refrigerate shrimp for 30 minutes
  5. Use this time to prepare variation (see options below)
  6. Melt butter in heavy duty skillet or dutch oven
  7. Add shrimp with tongs, turn over after 2-3 minutes (depending on size of shrimp) and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and prepare according to the variation you prefer…
