Help with shrimp?

I'm on Induction, would it be ok to take some frozen shrimp and make a garlic butter sauce to put on it? If so, any ideas about the sauce? I was going to make my own cocktail sauce, but I live in a small town and any pre packaged Horseradish or any fresh horse radish couldn't be found.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'd just melt some butter, add chopped garlic and saute a moment then add the shrimp and cook it

You could always add a pinch of red pepper flakes or cayenne to give it a kick that you're lacking without the horseradish.

Add a TBS of Olive Oil, too. It gives it a great taste, plus a few pinches of parsley does good, too!

If you want to spice it up some, you can always add some Frank's hot sauce to it - or any other hot sauce you like. Kinda like hot wings with shrimp that way!

Another really good one is mayo, chopped garlic , frank's hot sauce. I use to make this when I couldn't find horseradish. When I lived up on a mountain. I'm sure it will be wonderful.

The other day I sauteed some shrimp in butter and red thai curry paste, then poured in some coconut milk and stirred until it was hot. Then I mixed in some washed shirataki noodles and squeezed half a lime on top of it all. It was MOST delish!

You could also add some parm cheese to the garlic and butter, maybe a little heavy whipping cream for an alfredo.

A lemon, basil butter sauce with garlic would also be yummy.

If it hasn't been mentioned already:

With frozen pre-cooked shrimp, I find it best to either:

1) boil them while frozen, drain liquid, then throw in garlic butter, or

2) thaw them, fry them, drain liquid, then throw in garlic butter (they give off a lot of water and would overcook if you tried to boil it away before adding the butter).

I never make non pre-cooked shrimp, so that might be a different game altogether.

There might be a way to find some horseradish on the internet that doesn't have anything bad in it.

A shrimp dish that I have been making is a taco-esque shrimp mix. I'll throw shrimp and burger together and use Dana Carpender's taco seasoning recipe for the seasoning. Then just throw in whatever lettuce, low carb salsa, guacamole, etc.

Prepared horseradish without other stuff in it is usually hiding out somewhere in the store. Did you try looking on a high shelf next to the cheeses? When we asked at WalMart, it was in the refrigerated section to the right of yogurt, high up and pushed back on the shelf. I never would've seen it! That and Heinz's no sugar Ketchup, a squeeze of hot pepper sauce and a splash of lemon makes killer coctail sauce. Keep looking.

Blackened shrimp is one of our favorite low carb dinners. Just dust peeled raw shrimp with a blackening spice or make your own (recipe below) and saute in a really really hot pan with some olive oil -- cast iron is best. When you get past induction, cut up lots of veggies -- peppers, onions, zucchini, etc. -- and blacken along with the shrimp. Remember to turn on the exhaust fan!

My standard blackening spice mix: mix equal parts of: garlic powder or flakes, salt, pepper, onion powder or flakes, basil, thyme, cayenne pepper, paprika. I go a little heavier on the pepper and cayenne because I like a bit of kick. I usually use a tablespoon of each spice, mix it well, and store it in a jar. You can get several blackened meals with it, and it goes well with salmon and chicken, too.
