Instructions

Sautéed Shrimp

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, garlic and ginger.
  • Put the shrimp and half of the marinade into a bowl to marinate for at least 10 minutes and up to one hour.
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add vegetable oil. Add shrimp in a single layer and fry 1-2 minutes or until pink.
  • Add the rest of the marinade and then flip the shrimp.
  • Cook for 2 more minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly and starts to coat the shrimp.

Baked Shrimp

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Set aside a large baking sheet.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix shrimp with seasoning and oil. Place the seasoned shrimp on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 7 or 8 minutes.

Fried Shrimp

  • Mix together flour, salt and pepper in one bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs.
  • In the third bowl, mix together coconut and Panko bread crumbs.
  • Holding shrimp by the tail, dredge in the flour mixture, shake off excess and dip into beaten egg. Then dredge thoroughly in the coconut mixture to coat.
  • In a medium saucepan or deep fryer, add 2-3 inches of oil and heat to 375°F.
  • Fry shrimp in batches of 2-3 for about 2 minutes until golden. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a wire cooling rack.

Boiled Shrimp

  • Fill a large pot (8-12 quart) with 4 quarts of water. Add seasoning and salt. Place over high heat and bring to a boil.
  • Add the shrimp and simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and let the shrimp sit in the pot for 5-6 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
  • Drain the liquid, reserving a few cups if you prefer broth on the side.
  • Transfer the shrimp to a plate. Serve with optional melted butter, lemon wedges and hot sauce.

Grilled Shrimp

  • Preheat grill for medium heat.
  • Brush shrimp with oil and then mix with seasoning.
  • Grill shrimp for 2-3 minutes per side or until pink and opaque.
