what to do with 2 lbs of leftover shrimp (cocktail) now re-frozen?
I know, never refreeze... but I didn't see my brother stick the bag of thawed pre-cooked shrimp back in the freezer. Just found it last night.
I don't really like shrimp cocktail...so what else can I do with this massive 2 lb BLOCK of shrimp? Need to use it all at once as I'll have to thaw the whole thing. They are pre-cooked and peeled (with tails still on).
Some kind of pasta?
We make a Shrimp and Marinara sauce for pasta.
Sautee chopped shrimp with OO and garlic and white wine. Put to side with juices.
Make marinara and add shrimp and reserved juice...add a touch of cream.
Serve over pasta.
thank you thank you thank you all.
I was afraid this shrimp would go to waste, but i think i can make something delish with it!
I looked on epicurious and found a recipe for corn grits with shrimp, may try that...or shrimp sauce (red) for pasta.
Thanks again, hounds!
Try shrimp puffs. Great appetizer. The recipe's in the old (1973 I think) Joy of Cooking, but in essence it's whipped egg whites mixed with mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, finely chopped cooked shrimp and some spices. You put a dollop of the mix on a cracker and broil so it puffs up and starts to brown.
