I loved that broiled shrimp so much that I thought I’d use the technique for my quesadillas tonight. Super yummy! Will definitely make these again. I used whole wheat tortillas, cheddar cheese, and added some black beans too. Fix with your favorite ingredients and toppings. These were pretty spicy so I just served with some sour cream and salsa (I would have had avocados too but they looked terrible at the store today).
I thought I would broil my shrimp today; I don’t think I’d broiled shrimp quite this way before. I’ve always fired up the grill or used a skillet so this was a new technique for me. I have to say it is super easy; I think I should have been using the broiler sooner! This would make a great fajita if seasoned with some taco seasoning; it was delicious as I seasoned it today with some pasta!
1 pound shrimp
1 medium onion
1 – 2 bell peppers
2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne ~ if desired (mine was pretty spicy!)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
Peel shrimp; cut onions and peppers into wedges or chunks. Add all ingredients into bowl and stir or toss to coat. Spread in single layer on oiled cookie sheet and broil 3 – 4 inches from broiler for about 5 minutes; stir around and flip pieces over if desired move rack up a notch and broil another 3 – 5 minutes until shrimp is cooked through and edges of veggies are starting to brown.
