Spicy Jalapeño Butter Shrimp

We love to switch up our seafood mid-week. 'Spicy Jalapeño Butter Shrimp' is one of our favourite ways to prepare shrimp, it is SO quick and SO easy. Perfect to make when you get home from work in a hurry to eat. We have started throwing jalapeños into the pan when we make the shrimp, but they are optional.
We often use the shrimp as a side with other things like Flatout Mini Pizzas. 
-1lb Bag of Shrimp
-1/4 cup of butter
-1/2 can of Jalapeños (optional)
-salt & pepper to taste
-1 tsp. chili flakes
-1-2 tsp. chili powder
-1 tbsp. coconut oil
*season to taste, if these seasonings are too much for you reduce them

1. Thaw shrimp (if frozen).
2. Heat coconut oil in pan on stovetop at medium heat.
