    3 dozen shrimp, de-veined

    1 tablespoon salt

    1 teaspoon oregano

    1 teaspoon thyme

    1/2 cup butter

    5 cloves garlic, pressed

    1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced

    1/4 cup butter

    6 thin orange slices, for garnishing (optional)

    Shell and de-vein shrimp, leaving tails on. Place shrimp in small bowl with salt, oregano, thyme.

    In a separate bowl, cream together butter, garlic and parsley.

    In a small skillet, sauté mushrooms in butter. Brush seasoning mixture lightly from shrimp, allowing some to remain. Divide the shrimp among six individual oven proof baking dishes; top with sautéed mushrooms and drizzle with remaining butter from skillet.

    Spoon garlic butter mixture (as desired) on top of mushrooms.

    Bake at 375°F. for 12 minutes or until done.

    Garnish each serving with a thin orange slice, cut through to the center on one side and arranged in a twist over the shrimp. Top with a curl of green onion, if desired.

    6 servings.

    1/3 cup flour

    1/3 cup Martha White's Buttermilk Cornbread Mix

    1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    1/2 teaspoon paprika

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1/2 teaspoon sugar

    1/4 teaspoon each garlic and onion powder

    seltzer water, enough to make medium thin batter

    Shell-on Shrimp to fry

    oil for deep frying

    Heat oil to 365 degrees. After oil comes up to appoximately the correct temperature, test it by frying one shrimp. One shrimp should take about 2-3 minutes to be golden brown. Adjust heat accordingly.

    Prepare batter by stirring all the dry ingredients together until mixed well. Add the seltzer water in a thin stream in the center, mixing with a whisk to avoid lumps. Stir until smooth but do not overbeat. The batter should be similar in consistency to pancake batter.

    If you have a tendency to make tough tempura, use cake flour instead of all-purpose flour.

    Dip the shrimp in the batter, drain for 10 seconds and drop in hot oil. Remove when golden brown, season to taste, drain on paper towels, and serve with cocktail sauce or tartar sauce for dipping.

    You can use this same batter to make great onion rings with vidalia onions sliced 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle with onion powder before they cool.

    If you can't find the Corn Meal Mix at your store, substitute fine corn meal (1/3 cup), 2 tablespoons of dry buttermilk powder, and a half teaspoon baking powder and continue to use the other ingredients listed above.

    Sautee garlic and onions in two tablespoons of olive oil and two tablespoons of butter. Add a cup of white wine and a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice. Reduce heat and simmer until the mixture reduces by half. At the last minute, toss shrimp into this mixture, add hot pasta and toss. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Serve hot. It's wonderful.

    Bring up water, beer, and Old Bay Seasoning to a boil. Since it is already cooked you just have to drop the shrimp in long enough to heat thourougly. If you start off raw it's done when the tails curl.

    cook rice (instant is ok, but not preferred)

    heat up teriaki sauce (jar or soy sauce, garlic powder and sugar) until boiling.

    take off heat, add shrimp and some veggies (frozen or fresh - your choice)

    pour over rice.

    heat of the sauce warms shrimp - hot rice classifies dish as serve hot.

    Good luck!

    It is pre-cooked.. your job is to just fry it until it's hot.. you can fry it in a skillet on the stove top with a bit of margarine/butter and add a tiny squirt of lemon juice on the shrimp. Fry and enjoy.

    I put ours in a microwave pan with a top or microwave plastic wrap, and add about 1/4 cup water. I only heat for about a minute or two. If still cold, a few more seconds.
