Paprika Lime Shrimp Stir-Fry

Cooking shrimp has always kind of scared me.

I don’t know if you should have a food blog if cooking scares you.

And actually, it’s not just shrimp.  It’s cooking seafood in general.

Yeah.  Definitely should not have a food blog.

But here I am.


Buy precooked shrimp.*

It’s a beautiful thing.

No food poisoning (or even worse) dry shrimp here.**

*Sorry, this very well may be considered a sin in the food blog world.

**I kid.

Paprika Lime Shrimp Stir-Fry

serves 3


40 shrimp, frozen, precooked

1 lime, juice

zest of 1/2 a lime

2 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 tsp smoked paprika

4 Tbsp olive oil

3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Place the 40 frozen shrimp in a bowl.  Fill the bowl with water and allow shrimp to sit until they are thawed, about 5-10 minutes.  While the shrimp are thawing, combine the lime juice, lime zest, garlic, smoked paprika, olive oil and worcestershire sauce in a bowl that is large enough to hold the marinade and the shrimp.  Once the shrimp are thawed, pour out the water and remove the shrimp tails.  Toss the shrimp in the marinade and allow them to marinate while you prepare the vegetable stir fry.

Vegetable Stir-fry

2 small green bell peppers

1 red bell pepper

1 small zucchini

1/2 yellow squash

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp Garlic & Herb Seasoning

Chop all vegetables to desired size.  Toss chopped veggies with the olive oil and Garlic & Herb Seasoning.  Pour veggies into a skillet and saute over medium-high heat until softened.

Once the vegetables are softened, reduce the heat to low.  Heat a separate skillet oven medium-high heat and pour in the shrimp.  Avoid having too much marinade in the skillet as you just want to sear the shrimp on each side and not steam them.  Allow the shrimp to cook on one side until they begin to get brown and crispy, about 1-2 minutes.  Flip to the other side and cook for an additional 1 minute.

Serve shrimp and veggies over brown rice.
