  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Pour shrimp mixture into the hot skillet and cook until plump, firm, and no longer translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour over a bed of rice.

Cook's Notes:

If you just want a touch of spice, do not include the jalapeno seeds.

If you love the hot stuff, add more jalapeno or some red pepper flakes.
