Shrimp Tacos!

Pat the thawed shrimp dry and sear them quickly in a pan with some oil, lots of garlic and hot pepper flakes or a big pinch of cayenne. Serve in a taco shell loaded with cabbage salad or shredded lettuce and any other taco trimmings that you enjoy. Finish it with a big squirt of lime juice.

You got the double whammy, there -- pre-cooked, and Indonesian "farm" raised.

But, all is not lost.

As mentioned, dry them out, and then you can do a very quick sear to brown them a bit. As others have mentioned, using them in a salad or sauce will make up for the lack of flavor.

BTW, have a talk with the GF, be nice, and explain that the only way to buy frozen shrimp is raw, and with the shell on. Oh, and wild caught in the USA.

I’d just throw it on some pizza, maybe with pineapple. Or onions. And really good olive oil. And just so I can make even more pizza purists go “bleeech,” shrimp, anchovy and olives make good eating!

I'm okay with anchovies on pizza, but pineapples? Shrimp? Sorry, I gotta call "bleeech."

If God wanted pineapple on pizza, he would have put Italy in the South Pacific!

What about shrimp in garlic sauce?

Mix together evoo, salt, fresh parsley, and lots of chopped raw garlic.

Put the frozen shrimp in a ziplock, pour the mixture over them, seal, and refrigerate for an hour.

When they become partially thawed, pour everything into a pan and cook over low heat just until the garluc begins to lightly brown. By then, the shrimp should be heated through as well.

My wife buys these giant bags of frozen, pre-cooked shrimp when they go on sale (for something like $2 / pound). We've tried them in several dishes, but Garlic Shrimp, aka Camarones al Ajillo has been the best use for them.

Next choice would be to toss them in a spicy tomato sauce in which you've just previously added mussels and scallops.

Thanks for all of the great ideas and recipes.
It seems like they can be used in lots of things as long as they're not cooked for a long time. I definitely prefer Texas browns from the gulf, but these are what she brought home, lol. I gotta give her credit for trying!
