I read a thread a few days ago, and now I can't find it!.

I'm looking for a quick and easy way to prepare frozen shrimp for my lean. Going to grill some tonight with asparagus!.

I've never made shrimp that has been frozen before. Does anyone else do this? Should I thaw it first?.

Any recipes or ideas are appreciated!..

Run the shrimp under cold water in a collander until thawed. Just a few minutes. The shrimp is fabulous roasted in the oven. Drizzle with a tsp of olive oil, salt and pepper. 350 for 5 minutes. Perfect.

Even if only partially thawed, it will finish thawing rapidly when heated. It's funny, I'm planning on asparagus and shrimp tonight as well! Yummy!..

Shrimp is my FAVORITE protein now.. I love steak, but I can eat more shrimp which as no fat. Garlic salt whatever on it. I buy 1 pound bags at target, put in fridge a bag at a time...

I had the mock shrimp po boy tonight. It was so good. You make the bun using the maryland crab soup. Yummy!..

Steamed shrimp is quick and easy.....

Might also try this shrimp recipe that I came up with a couple years ago....mighty tasty.

Sounds like kalmd (above) tried it, I'm glad you liked it.

I am not sure about regular salt but I use a brand called No Salt Salt. There is no sodium in it at all. I just buy it at Kroger which is my local grocery store, but I am sure wal-mart and other places have it too. I am sure there are a couple of other brands too that have no sodium and I am unable to tell the difference...

I love the frozen shrimp for a quick L&G. I run it under cold water while I peel the tail off. I've prepared it several ways..

Sometimes, just a quick stir fry until it turns pink, and a tsp of cocktails sauce. Also asian garlic chili sauce, has less carbs and sugar, and give it a nice kick..

Simply boiling it, is nice on a salad with a little lemon..

I love shrimp and have enjoyed it while on MF..

The precooked frozen no tail shrimp is my FAVORITE thing for lunches for work. I just throw about 9 ounces frozen ( when it thaws and nuked in the micro for just a bit to warm it up it makes it about 7 ounces) into a ziplock bag with some lime juice out of the bottle and cilantro, and maybe some cajon seasoning. I also chop up some romaine lettuce and put that into a container, and put whatever dressing I choose in a seperate small container, travels well, defrosts by lunch, if no fridge to put it in, if you do have a fridge, you can just nuke it for less than one minute, and it will be perfect. toss in your salad and then you are good to go! Its my favorite!!!..

Salt and other condiments are allowed, but you are limited to 3 condiments a day. For the full list of condiments and portions, go to "Success Tools" at the top of this page and click on "Eat Right". The condiment list is on the bottom left, along with many other important Medifast doctuments!..

I tried it ayoung and didnt like it much. when I added this salt while cooking, the food tasted bitter...

Comment #13

This is what I'm having tonight... ran it by Nutrisystem and they said eat 2 portions! It'll be tough but I'll muddle thru somehow.

With it, I'm having zucchini "pasta" alfredo...

Comment #14

I have a hard time finding things here too without a million posts showing up. I have to check out that advanced feature.....

Anyway I'm a veggie, but I do eat fish and alot of shrimp. I would defrost the shrimp, let it soak in water for awhile. I like to saute it with garlic, I can't believe it's not butter, and throw some greenbeans in there. You get alot of shrimp for the ounces!..

I love using frozen shrimp for making a no-tortilla fajita thing. I thaw the shrimp in a colander by running cold water over it for several minutes, then let it drain completely. Then I slice up some red and green bell peppers and a little onion, saute in a bit of olive oil. While it's cooking, I sprinkle on some fajita seasoning (also on the shrimp while it's draining). Then a few minutes before the veggies are done to your liking, toss in the shrimp so they heat through completely, and voila! Just pretend you have the wrapper, sour cream and guacomole!!..

Fabulous! I will definitely try to find that! Looks awesome!.

So, 2 servings according to the package?..

Comment #19

I had the idea to thaw and saute shrimp with a bit of oil and spices, red pepper flakes etc, add fresh lime juice and roast red, yellow and orange bell peppers and roll the shrimp and peppers into a romaine lettuce leaf as a shrimp "fauxrrito"...and holy hell batman, it was fabulous, and I am normally a complete disaster in the kitchen. So, there's an idea for ya..

I purchased a few really good spice combo's from Penzeys Spices on line... they have an incredible BBQ 9000 spice with no sugar/carbs. I take 1 teasp of olive oil, add a whole bag of shrimp (raw) after I have deveined and shelled them. I let them cook for just a bit then sprinkle really generously with the new seasoning.......amazing! The ususally provides 3 servings and I put them on top of cooked fresh spinach I have done w/onions and garlic......

Comment #21

I put the frozen shrimp I need into a bowl of warm water and it is thawed in just a few minutes- drain well. My fave way to fix it is to spray a pan with Pam, saute the shrimp on medium until it is just turning pink, then turn heat to high. For my condiment I add about 2 teaspoons of this yummy sweet thai chili sauce (Aroma Chef) that Walmart has- it kind of candies onto the shrimp! It cooks really fast so watch that you don't overcook it..

My kids fight me for it!..
