Spicy Shrimp!

Spicy Shrimp

I made this appetizer on New Years Ever this year. My aunt held a cooking party with my mom's side of the family. We all picked a dish, brought all of our own ingredients, and then cooked over at her house all night long. It was SO much fun, and I totally recommend it as a great party idea! Anyways, I knew I wanted to make shrimp, and so I kind of just figured out what exactly to make while sitting in the movie theatre watching The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (SO good, btw!). Anyways, this is what I came up with! Enjoy!


2 lbs. shelled, de-veined shrimp
6 limes juices, pulp set aside
2 tbsp fresh, grated ginger
3 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp. red pepper flakes
2 tbsp. chili powder
2 tbsp. paprika
2 tbsp. cumin
Olive Oil

Combine lime juice, pulp, ginger, and soy sauce. Marinate shrimp for 20 minutes. Drain. Rub shrimp with all spices. Fry quickly over very high heat in less than a tsp. of olive oil until pink and crunchy on each side. Enjoy!
