Spicy Citrus Baked Jumbo Shrimp

These shrimp are so yummy-16 ounces jumbo shrimp (deveined, no tails or shells) can use frozen-thaw first then pat dry with paper towels. Add shrimp in a large bowl, add one lemon (juice), one lime (juice), one orange (juice), one tablespoon chili powder, stir gently, add garlic salt, cracked black pepper, to taste, transfer to a rimmed non stick baking sheet pan and pop into a hot 425 F oven for 6-8 minutes.

We love these served over brown rice!

Citrus Shrimp Boil

WIN_20160327_17_13_58_Pro (2)

 Get out that big Pot fill it with water set to high heat, add one lemon, one lime, one orange thick slices- add a pinch or two of sea salt, one tablespoon of Old Bay Seafood Seasoning and once boiling add 4 pounds large shrimp (shells on). Cook 5-6 minutes, stir during cooking time. Drain and set citrus slices aside. Place cooked shrimp in a large bowl.

You can add pre cooked new potatoes, corn on the cob (I use frozen half ears) and it rounds out the meal. It all just goes in a large bowl when done cooking! Grab a few fill up your plate, peel and eat!

I make this year round and it is especially good with fresh corn on the cob (that’s seasonal though) you can add any sides to the Shrimp Boil that you love.

If you are hungry for Shrimp this is a great way to have them!

Hope you enjoy!

Spicy Lemon Shrimp Dip

This is an easy recipe for an appetizer or just an evening watching a movie! It’s a family favorite and so easy to prepare!

You’ll need one pound (16 ounces) Fresh or Frozen Medium Shrimp, deveined,  pre-cooked is fine (if using frozen) thaw first. In a pot of boiling water add one tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning add shrimp and cook 3 minutes (the shrimp will turn a beautiful pink). Drain and let cool. Once cooled cut into pieces.

In a mixing bowl add 1-1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 cup sour cream, 2 sprigs chives cut into small pieces, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, one lemon (washed) for zest and juice. Several dashes of your favorite Hot Sauce (any will work), 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes.  Add the shrimp ( I cut them into smaller pieces) then stir with a spatula to well incorporate all ingredients. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1-2 hours before serving.

We just love this with toasted bread slices, or crackers whatever you would like to spread this on! It has a slight kick but not too spicy! 

I hope you like shrimp and give this easy, dip/spread a try it is so good!

In closing, I wish you Good Health “Cheffie Cooks” All Things Citrus.

Easy Lemon-Ginger Grilled Shrimp!

Citrus fruits and zest are wonderful with Seafood. One of our favorites is Lemon-Ginger Jumbo/Large Shrimp Grilled.

Lemon-Ginger Grilled Shrimp——————Serves 4——————–Prep/Grill 7-8 Minutes

You will need One pound (16 ounces) Fresh Jumbo/Large Shrimp (I buy mine from Seafood Market, frozen pre-cooked will also work-must thaw first). The Shrimp needs to be de-veined, no shell and tail. In a mixing bowl add two whole washed Lemons for their zest and juices, 1-1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger root grated finely, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder or paprika, salt and black pepper (about 1/4 teaspoon each). Marinate the shrimp for 15-20 minutes in the lemon-ginger mixture. Using an outside grill on medium high heat, or an inside grill or griddle pan, place marinated Shrimp on grill and grill for several minutes each side.

I love to serve this with brown/wild or white rice and a green mixed salad. The flavors are succulent yet delicate. If you love Shrimp you might like to try this easy, recipe using Lemons!

Citrus Lemon-Basil Shrimp!

Marinated shrimp only takes a few minutes. One of our favorites is Shrimp! I usually get 2 pounds Large Shrimp from my Seafood Market, shelled, de-veined and ready to marinate. I use melted butter (one half stick-4 tablespoons), 2 fresh lemons for zest and juice, 1-1/4 teaspoons fresh chopped basil. Add into a large bowl coat the large shrimp well, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes.

I use an inside griddle pan and grill pan and cook for 3-4 minutes each side. It is so delicious and easy to prepare. Great served with rice or salad. (Dipping sauce is just butter and lemon juice-but not the marinade!).

If you love Shrimp give this easy recipe a try; you may love it as much as we do!
