Start with some shrimp. I use uncooked Gulf shrimp that has been peeled.

I do leave the tails on though.

Throw them all into a large bowl.

Then pour in some blackening seasoning.

This is the only blackening seasoning they have had lately at my local grocery store, but it tastes yummy on shrimp.

Stir everything together to make sure your shrimp all get nice and coated with the blackening seasoning and oil.


Pour it all out onto a baking sheet and place into the oven.


And about 10 minutes later, this is what you’ve got!


Toss it onto a salad or serve with a side of your favorite vegetables and you’ve got a meal!

    I made this last night in the toaster oven and it was super amazing! I used the Redfish Blackened seasoning since that’s the only flavor Safeway had. My wife loved it! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe
