Okay sweet friends! Let’s get this simple, easy recipes series kicked off with a bang! You ready?

I knew when I was thinking of the recipes to include in this series that this Simple Blackened Shrimp just had to be in there. It is the very definition of a simple recipe and is absolutely mouth watering. I just know y’all are going to love it!

Here’s how I make it.

Don’t blink now, because you’ll miss something it’s so fast!


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.


Pour in some canola oil or whatever kind of cooking oil you prefer.




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!

Pretty neat, huh?

  2. The simplest best receipe I have found yet! I put mine with grits and crab salad, with lots of raw veggies, and the family loved it! They all wanted seconds, too bad, I didn’t make enough, except for one serving a piece. Thank you!

  3. I decided to go meatless and decided to do me some blackened shrimp get recipe and quick to make. It was delicious and I served them with a bed of lettuce and sliced tomatoes. Simply delicious!! Thank you
