Spicy Three Pepper Shrimp

Total Time

This is an easy weeknight recipe for 2 or 3 that has loads of flavor. As written, it's pretty spicy for the grown-ups, but can be toned down to suit your spice tolerance. I serve it over saffron rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine 1 tbsp olive oil and the next 6 ingredients, garlic through shrimp. Stir and let rest for at least 15 minutes. If refrigerated, the mixture can rest up to two hours.
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peppers and saute about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp mixture and saute for 5 - 6 minutes, or until shrimp are opaque and cooked through. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp.
  3. Sprinkle the cilantro on the shrimp and serve with the rice.

As the recipe description states, this was a very easy weeknight meal and we enjoyed it very much. DH and I like a dish with heat, so we did not tone down the recipe and it had the right amount of spice for us. We served over saffron rice as suggested, which provided a nice colorful contrast to the shrimp and peppers. Thanks! Made for ZWT9
