A few tips for cooking shrimp perfectly every time!

The precooked shrimp helps to make dinner time so fast and easy. It allows me to come home from a busy day and get dinner served to my family in just minutes!

Since the precooked shrimp are frozen when you buy them, I like to defrost them before cooking. It just makes it easier.

Simply put the shrimp in a strainer and run cold water over the shrimp for a few minutes. This will help to break apart the shrimp and make them more pliable.

I usually just let the water run in the strainer while I am doing something else in the kitchen. This is a great time to get the cabbage and other toppings ready!

  1. Wow! This recipe was great. Very fresh tasting, cool but spicy. It sure was a crowd pleaser and easy to make. I made some with shrimp, chicken and chorizo, since not everybody likes shrimp. I made lime cilantro rice for a side. Definitely would make again. Thanks.

  2. 5 stars
    Made this for a quick meal after a long day working my real estate career. Thankful I had most of the ingredients on hand. Was wonderful in spite of not having all the ingredients. Will pick up the missing ingredients and make it again for my family when we are together! Thank you! Thank you!
