Donna Thomason knows how to bring a little pizzazz to her El Pas, Texas table—she stirs up a batch of these zippy shrimp. Use as much or as little cayenne pepper as you like, depending on your family's tastes. "This is nice served alongside rice pilaf," she suggests.
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- In a large nonstick skillet, saute the paprika, thyme, salt, nutmeg, garlic powder and cayenne in oil for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add shrimp; saute for 2-3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, stirring occasionally. Yield: 4 servings.
