Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe. They're offered for convenience, alternative ideas, and points of interest. If you have any comments about them, please post in the Help & Ideas forum.

  • Choose fresh shrimp for the best flavor and texture.
  • If you can't find cubanelle peppers, you can use green bell peppers instead.

  • Substitute olive oil with avocado oil for a healthier option. Avocado oil is higher in monounsaturated fatty acids, which help reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Substitute the bell peppers with mushrooms for a more earthy flavor. Mushrooms are a great source of dietary fiber, which helps promote healthy digestion.

Coconut Shrimp Saute Replace the olive oil with coconut oil. Add 1/4 cup of shredded coconut flakes to the shrimp before sautéing. Top the dish with a sprinkle of toasted coconut flakes before serving.

Roasted Asparagus with Lemon - Roasted asparagus with a squeeze of lemon is a perfect side dish to complement the flavors in the shrimp sauté. The bright, fresh flavors of the lemon and asparagus will balance out the spices in the shrimp, creating a delicious and healthy meal.

Garlic Roasted Potatoes: Garlic roasted potatoes are a great side dish to serve with the shrimp sauté. The potatoes are roasted in a savory garlic-infused oil, which adds a delicious flavor to the potatoes and complements the spices in the shrimp. The potatoes are also a great source of carbohydrates, making them a nutritious and filling side dish.


Q: How long should I cook the shrimp?

A: The shrimp should be cooked for a total of 4 minutes, flipping them after 2 minutes to ensure both sides are cooked through.

Q: What temperature should I cook the shrimp?
