  • Drain for 2 minutes before serving.


  • Heat butter or oil in a skillet
  • Add thawed shrimp, desired seasonings, garlic, herbs and/or vegetables, then sauté for approximately 1 - 2 1/2 minutes.
  • If using lemon juice, wine or sauce, add during the last minute of cooking.


  • Season or marinate thawed shrimp as desired, then place shrimp on a hot grill for approximately 2 -3 1/2 minutes
  • Turn shrimp over halfway through cooking time.
