  • Dump the bag of frozen shrimp in a colander and run cold water over them for 5 minutes or until defrosted.
  • Dry off the defrosted shrimp with a paper towel and place them in a bowl. Season with Volcano Grind seasoning or your favorite seasoning.
  • In a large cast iron skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of ghee over medium heat.
  • Add the sliced onions, salt, and pepper and sauté until the onions are soft, caramelized, and translucent.
  • Throw in the cherry tomatoes into the pan with the sautéed onions and toss them until they are warm. Don't over cook the tomatoes until they explode!

  • Toss in the shrimp and sauté for about one minute each side.
