  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 pieces flour tortillas 8-inch size, optional


  • Take the shrimp from freezer and thaw it overnight or use running water to thaw it quickly.
  • Mix together paprika, cayenne, thyme, oregano, onion powder, cumin, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  • Combine thawed shrimp with 1 tbsp oil and blackened seasoning. Mix well. Let sit for 5-10 minutes for the seasoning to soak in.
