Here we have a super simple skillet shrimp. Just a few ingredients and all done in the comfort of your skillet. this shrimp works great in tacos, quesadillas, wraps, on rice, with veggies, or on a chopped salad.

It can be marinated overnight or used as soon you marinate it. I used jumbo shrimp but any type of shrimp will work well for this.

It retain the heat but any heavy-duty skillet will work well. Just be sure to heat it on high for at least 2 minutes before adding the shrimp. The heat will cook the shrimp and give them a nice exterior while keeping all the juice locked into them nice and moist.
