Question Recipes for already cooked shrimp

I can get frozen, already cooked shrimp delivered.

I'm tired of just putting them on toast. Does anyone have any recipes that use already cooked shrimp?

I don't really have recipes, per se, but if I had them I would make up a chipotle sauce, or other Mexican recipe, and toss them in long enough to warm them up, to make tacos. Another thing that pops into my mind, that I do with leftover Thai curry, and some other shrimp dishes, as well - instead of putting all of the shrimp into a dish, I steam or sauté them separately, add a few to my dish, and spread the rest out on a plate to cool (sort of like leftovers!). Then, when reheating the curry in the microwave, the shrimp are added after, and I let them sit to warm up - this way, they don't turn to rubber.

I love those ideas Dave. Not wanting them to get rubbery is definitely one of the reasons I asked.

Shrimp pad thai, shrimp lo mein, shrimp fried rice. As peppered said, just add them in at the end to heat the shrimp.

Shrimp salad - like tuna salad but with shrimp.

Shrimp cocktail.

My Costco used to sell a cold pesto pasta salad with sundried tomatoes, romano and shrimp. I miss it this year! But it would be a good use for your shrimp.

I got this recipe from the Chef d'Cuisine at Scoma's Seafood Restaurant, Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco:

Snapper Romano
Ingredients:
Fish
  • 4 Pacific rock cod, or other firm fleshed fish fillets
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbs light olive oil
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic, finely chopped
  • ˝ tsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs butter, cubed and slightly chilled
  • 2 Tbs Mushroom, sliced
  • 2 Tbs yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 scallion, white part only, sliced
  • Ľ tsp oregano
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 cup small (61 – 70 per lb) cooked shrimp
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
Instructions:

Dry the fish fillets with paper towels and season them with salt and pepper. In a sauté pan, heat the light olive oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Dredge the fillets in flour and sauté them 3 to 4 minutes per side, until cooked through. Remove the fish and keep them warm.

Reduce the heat to medium, add the garlic to the sauté pan and cook, stirring constantly, until it just starts to get golden brown, about 60 seconds. Remove the pan from the heat, add the lemon juice and butter, and swirl the pan until butter just melts. Add the mushrooms, onion, scallion, and oregano and sauté them until soft.

Add the marinara sauce and bring it to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat, add shrimp and stir to heat through. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the sauce over the fish fillets.

Sir_Loin, that sounds wonderful. I'll make that as written some time when I can tolerate cooked tomato. I'll try it with some sort of cream sauce soon. I have saved the recipe.

This reminds me of a recipe I have for shrimp and marinated-artichoke pasta salad. Recipe directions in my own words

Pasta
2 cups pasta shells, uncooked
1 lb. cooked shrimp
1 1/2 cups steamed broccoli (I use roasted bell peppers or celery)
1/2 cup sliced green onions (i use 1 sliced shallot)
1 6-oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained, marinade reserved, roughly chopped
Shredded or torn lettuce

Dressing
Oil drained from artichoke hearts
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions.

In a large bowl, whisk dressing ingredients till well combined. Add pasta and toss.

Add remaining ingredients and stir together. Chill for a few hours before serving over lettuce.

taxy (and everyone else) here's something different you may like:

a very popular dish in Hawaii and one of my personal favorites!
(Hit the Link to watch the video and get the recipe)
Even though it's called Poke, the Shrimp is cooked. Not all Poke recipes use raw Seafood.
A side note: the gentleman presenting this video is Lanai Tabura, he and his brother won Food Networks Season 4 of the Great Food Truck Race.

Ok… I have modded one of my favorite shrimp recipes for using pre-cooked shrimp. This stuff is truly to die for, and is amazing over slightly sticky white rice with some stir fried veggies or Chinese chicken salad.

The secret here for using pre-cooked shrimp is the frying process. You'll be frying cold shrimp, so you want the oil hot (375°F), and to stay hot. So use a large cast iron skillet or dutch oven. Fry in 2 or 3 batches, and place each batch on a wire rack while you work on the next.

When the oil is hot, and the shrimp is ready to fry, get everything in place for the sauce.

Fry the shrimp. Since it is already cooked, you're only looking for a crispy, lightly browned coating… shouldn't take more than a minute or two for each batch. As soon as you're ready to fry your last batch, get the sauce started. The sooner the fried shrimp is toss coated in the hot, sticky sauce, the crispier and stickier the end result will be. I know this sounds like a lot, but the only tricky part is to have the sauce ready to go at about the same time all the shrimp has been fried. But even if you miss that by a few minutes, the only thing you'll lose out on is some of the crispiness (the flavor will still be amazing.)

Short of refridgerating the coated shrimp, the whole process takes less than 10 minutes, so make sure all your sides are ready and plates are warmed beforehand.

3/4 lb pre-cooked shrimp (25% less than when using raw)
1 egg white, beaten
1 cup cornstarch
1 1⁄2 tablespoons oil
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons catsup
1⁄4 cup vinegar (rice is best but any will do)
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sherry wine (a good one)
1⁄2 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1⁄4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
5 tablespoons green onions, chopped
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon orange zest

Slice shrimp in halve lengthwise and pat dry.
Add the egg white to shrimp and mix well.
Mix 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch with 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Add to the shrimp.
Stir to coat well.
Add 1 1/2 tablespoon oil and mix well again.
Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Remove the shrimp and dust with remaining cornstarch.
Shrimp should be dry to the touch.
Heat oil to 375°F; shake off excess cornstarch and separate shrimp.
Fry till lightly golden brown.
Combine the shrimp with the sauce and toss quickly to coat.

Serve immediately and garnish with chopped scallions and maybe some lemon or orange zest.


To make the sauce:
Combine the sugar, salt, vinegar and catsup; set aside.
Mix the sherry and cornstarch; set aside.
Heat 1 teaspoon oil in hot cast iron.
Add garlic, ginger, zests, green onion and red pepper.
Cook 30 seconds; stir in catsup mix.
Immediately add sherry mixture and cook till slightly thickened.

Here is another fav, this one from Paul Prudhomme's book (great book BTW if you like Cajun/Creole)

Use only 75% of the called for shrimp when using pre-cooked, and consider the frying advice presented in my previous post. Also if your shrimp is large, cut them into large popcorn size pieces (large enough to hand dip in the sauce). I'd again recommend refrigerating the shrimp rather than leaving out at room temp.

Also, I susbstitute mayo for the egg yoke and oil in his sherry sauce recipe, as well as chile suace for the ketchup, and cayenne for the white pepper. I also add a dash of fresh lemon juice. No need to use a food processor for this when using mayo, just get a real fine chop of the onions (or you could mince it up real fine in the food processor beforehand).

Really yummy handsy snack.

OMGosh - I've copied most of these recipes already! Wonderful. Although shrimp is not on a diet for arthritis - I don't care - love them and am willing to suffer the next day!

What ever you do with your frozen shrimp taxy, just be sure to super dry them when defrosted. Use a ton of paper towels.

Sushi salad. Everything that is in the sushi, but made into salad.

Sounds interesting. It's been a very long time since I ate sushi, so I don't really remember what was in it. Do you happen to have a recipe for sushi salad?
