what to do with 2 lbs of leftover shrimp (cocktail) now re-frozen?

  • 8

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?
stirfry?

help?

  1. Here's the list of Chow shrimp recipes:

    I think stirfry or a curry would be a good option.

    1. Invite some friends over for gumbo or shrimp creole

      1. 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.

        1. Midnight shrimp platter! Reheat them gently with some red pepper paste and garlic.

          1. Lasagna There are probably a million recipes for seafood or shrimp lasagna out there.
