"Indulge in the flavors of Blackened Shrimp with Butter Sauce—a delectable, low-carb, one-pan dish bursting with taste. I used wild-caught shrimp from Key West for this Blackened Shrimp Recipe. Of course, you can use any variety of shrimp that you have. If the shrimp are frozen, defrost them under cold running water or in the refrigerator for a few hours. Mix the blackening spices together. The heat of the spices is controlled by the amount of cayenne pepper that's in it. Toss the shrimp in a bowl with a little oil, then add the spice blend and mix again. In a large cast iron skillet, add a little oil and a few crushed garlic cloves. Add shrimp. Cook for 2-3 minutes in total. Whisk a half stick of butter in the pan, season, and throw the shrimp back in. That's it! Serve hot over rice or potatoes and you have the best blackened shrimp in America! This is a great low-carb meal for busy weeknights. It's so easy to make. You can make the spice blend ahead and keep it in your pantry for whenever you need it. It can be used on any kind of fish or chicken."
