4 Minute Spicy Garlic Shrimp

This recipe is a very popular one I have seen around although I am not totally sure where it originated. Perhaps with the McCormick seasonings brand as those generally use their product.

However,  I won’t call for their product but give you a seafood seasoning of my own. The seasoning is one I use on all sorts of fish and seafood recipes from grilling outdoors to adding flavors in the kitchen.

As party foods go, this one is a cinch, especially if you have someone drop by suddenly. Of course, you will need to be in possession  of some shrimp.

But from there it is just a few minutes away.

The shrimp  pairs wonderfully with beer, wine and cocktails. It also makes a good seafood point for an array of appetizers if you set up a table.
