This is my own invention, simple to prepare and delicious!!

Paella is another good one.

If they are tiny like popcorn shrimp, I would suggest making it into a salad, you can make a delicious one with cubed avocado, a little chopped scallion and a mixture of sour cream, mayonnaise and a dash of cardamom.

watch the movie "forrest gump" with pen and paper ready.

bubba has a few ideas.

this is one of my favourite shrimp recipes, however, i serve it in a bowl with crusty bread for dipping in the garlic oil. over rice, as the recipe suggests, would be too oily for me..

I love risotto or pasta with shrimps - it is always great.

Take a look at this recipes - I always prepare them (mostly with frozen shrimps), we love them:

my favorite way for a while now, is to toss shrimp with olive oil and lots of minced garlic, s & p on a baking sheet - bake in preheated 450 F. oven for 3 minutes; turn shrimp over and continue roasting until they are opaque and firm, 2-4 min. no longer!! perfect everytime.

Scrape all into a bowl and refrigerate till well chilled. Or if you use enough oil and garlic, toss hot from the oven with some pasta and top with some Parmesan.

I had some frozen shrimp that I cooked for shrimp cocktail the other night. I just brought some water and beer to a boil with a halved lemon and tossed in the shrimp,still frozen. When the liquid came to a rapid boil, I covered the pot and took it off the heat. After about 5-8 mins. the shrimp were perfectly done.
