uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 (1.6 oz) package
buffalo wing seasoning mix (such as McCormick® Original Buffalo Wings Seasoning Mix)
bottled minced garlic
crushed red pepper flakes
coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
lime wedges, for garnish
These were really good and so easy to make! I will for sure them again. I also coulnt find the powder buffalo seasoning so I used about 1/2 cup of my favorite bottled buffalo sauce and put them in a baggie with it and shook them to spead it all over. Then followed the directions from there.I served them with rice.
It was okay...there was a definite powdered sauce taste. I like the Szechwan Shrimp recipe on this site much better and it's just as quick to make.
AMAZING! I made this for my husband and served it over spaghetti with just a little bit of grated parmesan and garlic bread. I did not change it or omit anything. Perfect just as is. I have an ongoing grocery list on my fridge and my husband actually got up during the meal and wrote "shrimp spaghetti" on it. Will make again. Thanks!
Wonderful and soooo easy. Just a hint....make alot more than you think you will need because these go fast!! Thanks for a great recipe.
This is definitely a keeper. Easy to make and just delicious! I only had cooked shrimp so I let them cooked for about 3 minutes. The lime and the cilantro at the end make it outstanding.
Soooooo good! I made this while my husband was busy all day with home improvements. He buzzed through the kitchen just as I was finishing up, grabbed one little shrimp on his way and I said "Wait, is it any good?" He replied, "Hell yeah! I mean yes!" After he finally got a whole huge bowl he asked if there was still some left because he was going to want more the next day. A new favorite at our house. I made it exactly as described in the recipe except I didnt measure the lime juice or cilantro. I just juiced 2 limes (they were'nt super juicy so it was probably about right) and chopped what looked like enough cilantro. Served over a frozen bag of southwestern rice popped in the microwave. So happy to have a super easy meal that tastes like so much more.
We loved this recipe. We used a Caribbean Jerk seasoning, and it was delicious. Shrimp is always a quick healthy meal, and this had a ton of flavor. I made this with the "Southwestern Rice" on Allrecipes, and a tortilla on the side. It was a wonderful dish.
Wasn't sure what else to have with the shrimp, so we added some peppers and onions and turned them into fajitas.
