  • 1 lb Jumbo Raw Shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • ½ tsp Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning
  • ¼ tsp Dash Original seasoning
  • ¼ tsp Dash Extra Spicy seasoning

  • With a skillet on the stove top, turn to medium-high heat.
  • Melt butter, and just as it begins to bubble, but before it starts to brown, add the shrimp.
  • Mix seasonings and add half of it to the shrimp. Cook for 3 - 5 minutes.
  • As the shrimp begins to turn pink, stir to flip, and add the remaining seasonings.
  • You can add your lemon juice, as you'll allow the flavors to merge for the last 3 - 5 minutes of cooking. OR, you can wait til the end and use as a garnish.
  • Remove from the heat, serve immediately, and enjoy!
