Crock Pot Shrimp Dinner Ideas Index
There's not a lot to this recipe either. Just toss in your ingredients, cover, and cook.
You can use frozen shrimp and it can cook for several hours without issue. If you use fresh or thawed shrimp, you'll need to toss it in during the last hour. You can also use peeled or unpeeled shrimp too. You'll know supper's done when the shrimp are pink and tender.
Just a quick note on shrimp...grey is raw, pink is cooked...white is over cooked. Pink and curly is your goal. Your cook time will vary depending on the shrimp size, fresh or frozen and if it's shell on or shell off. It's sooooo worth watching it the first time to get your time down. It's yummy!
