  • 1 to 1 1/4 teaspoons red-pepper flakes
  • 1 recipe Three-Ingredient Marinara


  1. Season shrimp with salt. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high. In 2 batches, cook shrimp until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per batch. Transfer to a plate.

Cook's Notes

Frozen Shrimp
Shrimp is often frozen when caught, so buying it this way is as good as fresh.
