  • 1 Tbsp. cilantro chopped
  • 2 medium (quart) freezer bag


Assembly Instructions:

  • Place the shrimp into a medium resealable freezer bag. Remove excess air and seal.
  • Add the other ingredients into another medium bag. Squish together to combine. Remove the excess air from the bag and seal. Staple the two bags together before freezing.

Cooking Instructions:

  • On the day of cooking, take the bags out to thaw. Dump everything in a large skillet on medium-high until the shrimp are heated through and turn pink.


Serve the shrimp with rice, potatoes, or pasta and a side of vegetables. If you want, you can top the shrimp with some additional fresh cilantro and lime wedges.
This shrimp also makes a great filling for shrimp tacos on flour or corn tortillas with guacamole.
