Crispier and Tastier - with Bacon Up® Bacon Grease
Large Skillet (I use Cast Iron)
Large Mixing Bowl
1TbspBacon Up® Bacon Grease
1poundUncooked Shrimppeeled and deveined
1.5tspCajun seasoninguse your favorite!
1/2tspRed Pepper Flakes
Heat the Bacon Up in a large skillet over medium heat. (I prefer a Cast Iron Skillet!)
In a large mixing bowl, mix the seasoning and pepper flakes. Then add shrimp and mix thoroughly to ensure shrimp is coated well.
Add shrimp to the hot pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side, until shrimp is pink and cooked through.
Remove shrimp from skillet and serve immediately.
This is a go-to recipe for me -- so easy and SO versatile! Shrimp can be served as an appetizer with your favorite sauce, tossed with pasta, in a taco, or as the protein topper on a salad. The added flavor of the Bacon Up with the little kick from the Cajun seasoning and red pepper is really a crowd pleaser!!
