    What can I make with baby shrimp?

    I have a big bag of baby shrimp I got frozen from the store that I would like to cook up this week. I have never made shrimp before (but I know I like it) so I don't really know what to do with it. I am currently doing Whole30 and I have given up searching for decent recipes on the net that fit into my diet. Can anyone offer any suggestions?

    ETA: I guess they are not 'baby' shrimp but 'salad' shrimp. If that makes a difference.

    are they precooked? salad shrimp often are.

    if so, defrost & toss w/ salad.

    they are awesome in stir frys w/ lotsa veggies esp. asian style

    also good in soup, with seaweed.

    Shrimp "taco" lettuce wraps. Cook with lost of mexican spices and serve in lettuce wraps with fresh red onion, avocado, lime juice, and cliantro.

    I like a simple half avocado filled with baby shrimps mixed with homemade mayo.

    I like them in curry sauce with other veggies over cauliflour 'rice'. I second the lettuce wraps - mmmm. They also go well in soup - I like to make something like cipopinno and they work well.
