Red Chili Pepper Shrimp

Mmmmmmmmm…..

I love shrimp and I love spice! Why not put them together?
This is one of my favorite dishes.  My fiancé is always asking me to make “that chili pepper shrimp stuff” all the time.

The main ingredient is the red chili pepper.  You can find it in the jelly section at your local grocery store.  I was lucky to find a giant jar for under $10 at Costco!! I highly recommend reading the ingredients to make sure you don’t find any nasty additives.

Here is the recipe!

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10-15 minutes
Serves 3-4 people (depending on how hungry you are!)

Ingredients
Black pepper
Cayenne pepper
3 table spoons Red chili pepper
2 dozen shrimp (defrosted)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1) Warm up a frying man on medium heat and coat it with the olive oil.

2)Season the shrimp with a sprinkle of black pepper and cayenne pepper.  The more you coat the shrimp, the spicier it will be!

3) Place shrimp on the pan and cook for about 4 minutes on each side with a lid on the pan.  The lid will lock in more moisture and steam so the shrimp will cook thoroughly.  No one likes dry shrimp!

4) Once the shrimp cooks on both sides, add 3 tablespoons of the Red Chili Pepper.  Mix the jelly around to coat the shrimp.  Cover the pan again for another 3 minutes or until the jelly has dissolved.

5) Serve over quinoa pasta, your favorite rice or veggies!! Enjoy!

 

**Tip**
You can use the same recipe for fish!! I made mine with Talapia!! Yummmy!!

Cheers!
