3-Ingredient Shrimp and Salsa over Tamales

No time? No problem.
10 minutes + 3 ingredients +1 pan =  Dinner that's better and cheaper than take out!

1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined*
1 jar (13 oz.) Trader Joe's Cowboy Caviar - Corn, Black Bean & Pepper Salsa
2 packages (10 oz. each) Trader Joe's Cheese and Green Chile Tamales

Spray a large nonstick skillet with coconut oil spray or add a little oil to the skillet and heat over medium heat.  Add shrimp and cook 4 to 6 minutes until shrimp turn pink.

Stir in salsa and cook 2 minutes or until heated through.

Meanwhile, heat tamales in microwave according to package instructions.

Serve shrimp over tamales.

*Purchase frozen shrimp that are already peeled and deveined.  Just run them under room temperature water for a quick thaw.

I personally like to make this with these Trader Joe's products, but when I can't get to a Trader Joe's other brands work too.  Desert Pepper Black Bean and Corn Salsa is a good choice and I've also found nice frozen tamales in the supermarket.
