When I was a newlywed, each time I would walk down the seafood aisle and see pre-cooked shrimp, I would ask myself how I could incorporate it in my cooking. I thought it would be pointless to purchase pre-cooked shrimp, since I was sure it wouldn’t be as flavorful as shrimp I could prepare myself. Boy was I wrong! Pre-cooked shrimp is one of those ingredients that works in your favor when you need to save time in the kitchen. And with a delicious marinade, you can give the shrimp as much of a flavor boost as you want.
One of my favorite recipes that features pre-cooked shrimp is this baked shrimp taquito with a lemon, jalapeño and coriander marinade. Since the taquitos get nice and toasty in the oven, you don’t have to worry about the hassle of frying them in hot grease or oil. This recipe is also an excellent option for Lent.
