Super delicious! We were all licking our fingers. I used much less cayenne, and they were still pretty spicy. Everyone started coughing while this was frying...guess the spices were overwhelming us...ha! ha!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix spice ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl (make a double or triple batch and store the remainder for later use!) Dredge shrimp through the mixture.
  2. Place a large skillet over a very high heat, and melt the butter.
  3. Place the shrimp in the skillet and turn heat down to medium.
  4. Cook on both sides for approximately 7 minutes (maybe less) each- pay attention to the shrimp as they cook quickly; when the shrimp curl, they are done.
  5. Optional – sprinkle the vegetables with the spice mix and sauté in the butter in the same skillet.
  6. Serve with lots of garlic bread and ice-cold beer or chilled white wine.
