    Shrimp loves garlic, and garlic loves shrimp.

    Looks great! Thanks to thus thread I thawed 5 lbs of shrimp, gonna grill them with a Gochujang marinade. I have to peel them so I'm gonna make some shrimp stock out of the shells. Its a bit of work but will be good.

    I fully intended on grilling these, but we're re-working the backyard and my grills are barricaded up next to the house surrounded by bags of soil.

    In any case, I wanted to get better at the cast iron thing before moving on.

    This batch of shrimp was marinated for 25 minutes in olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.

    This time I preheated the pan a bit more at a slightly higher temp (pan was 430 F instead of 350 F from the previous time). Cooked shrimp exactly two minutes per side and they came out near-perfect.

    These had a very nice scampi flavor to them. Interestingly, after I had three of them I really wanted some cocktail sauce with them! I didn't have any, but I had some Heinz Chili Sauce, which is pretty close. The reason I mention this is that some recipes use tomato paste in their shrimp marinade, which I thought was really weird, but maybe there is something to that.

    Panhead John Enchiladas are also "wrapped" in tortillas but they are not fajitas or tacos.
    You young guys need to learn 'whats what'.

    Here in Houston anyway, the terms fajitas and tacos are interchangeable in a lot of cases. Both are wrapped in tortillas.

    Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that's about it.

    I must have been by Rose's Seafood sometime in the past as I seem to have a cooler from them. I was a FoodTV person back in the early 2000s and I think I may have picked up some crab legs from them. (I am officially on the waitlist for the vaccine, as my county just opened it up to all residents, so hopefully I'll be getting there sooner rather than later!)

    Another thing I want to try is Malcom Reed's Shrimp and Grits.....it just looks amazing: https://howtobbqright.com/2018/03/29...imp-and-grits/

    Looks nice. Now, if you don't want to marinade, a tip... cook them from frozen in a skillet. I do this a fair amount when I want the shrimp as a protein in, say, a curry or something with a sauce.

    Toss them on a preheated (medium heat) skillet, with some oil in it. If you want, add a little liquid and cover for about 2 mins, then uncover and sauté, flipping them so they cook evenly. Remove, build the sauce, re-add and voila.

    "A few of the larger ones were perhaps just a little undercooked, like 1/8" diameter in the middle seemed just a hair transparent. "

    Thats fine from a safety point of view and, frankly, a lot better than overcooked shrimp. What you like might mean cooking them a bit more, but don't worry about it from a safety standpoint
