This is one of my favorite recipes that can be made as an appetizer of a main course. My wife and I have been making these delicious shrimp for a few years now and the entire family loves it.

Directions

  1. Rinse the shrimp with cold water and pat dry with paper towls. Add the shrimp and seasoning mix to a plastic bag and shake to coat.
  2. Heat the butter, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a large skillet over medium heat until the butter has melted. Raise the heat to medium-high; when the butter begins to pop and sizzle add the shrimp to the pan. Cook and stir the shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 4 to 5 minutes. Do not overcook.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cilantro and lime juice. Garnish with lime wedges and serve hot.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

These were really good and so easy to make! I will for sure them again. I also coulnt find the powder buffalo seasoning so I used about 1/2 cup of my favorite bottled buffalo sauce and put them in a baggie with it and shook them to spead it all over. Then followed the directions from there.I served them with rice.

AMAZING! I made this for my husband and served it over spaghetti with just a little bit of grated parmesan and garlic bread. I did not change it or omit anything. Perfect just as is. I have an ongoing grocery list on my fridge and my husband actually got up during the meal and wrote "shrimp spaghetti" on it. Will make again. Thanks!
