Blackened Shrimp is so quick and easy to make and wonderfully delicious. The blackening seasoning is a balance of spicy, earthy chilis and herbs.
- 1 pound large shrimp (31/35 count) peeled and deveined
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 lemon, cut into wedges
In a large bowl, combine paprika, cumin, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
Working in batches, dip the shrimp in the melted butter. Transfer shrimp to the seasoning mixture, tossing to coat in blackened seasoning.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil and heat until shimmering.
Add the shrimp to the skillet in one layer. Cook, 2 minutes or until blackened. Turn the shrimp and cook, 1 to 2 minutes or until the shrimp are pink, firm and opaque.
Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
