Spicy Moroccan Shrimp

I don’t eat seafood often, but occasionally I get a craving for it.  I had been wanting some sort of shrimp, some sort of spicy shrimp.  So, I adapted a recipe for Moroccan chicken, but used shrimp instead.

It was fabulous, absolutely delicious.  It was just what I wanted.

Basically, you all need to try this ASAP.  If you don’t like shrimp, don’t worry.  The spice mix will work on chicken, pork, whatever.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and add the garlic.  Let the garlic cook over medium heat for 1-3 minutes, but don’t let it burn.

Mix the spices together, and add them to the pan, stirring well to combine. Allow spices to cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes.

      I love shrimp, too. I can’t make this often because the kiddo isn’t a fan of spice, but I break it out whenever possible!

      Thanks for stopping by!
