Seafood may seem like an intimidating ingredient to cook with, but here are some tips and tricks to help you cook with confidence when making this and any other delicious meal with shrimp:
The first question you might be asking yourself is whether you should buy frozen or fresh shrimp and in reality, it just depends on your preferences and time on hand. Cooking with fresh shrimp just means that there are certain steps to cleaning the crustaceans first, like shelling them and cleaning the vein. Frozen shrimp usually comes cleaned and shelled, being a more convenient option if you’re not used to handling fresh seafood.
Although some may say fresh is tastier, it is easy to experiment with both and choose the one that fits your cooking style better!
Shellfish is a form of seafood that includes crustaceans and mollusks like shrimp, scallops or crab, etc. It’s a very diverse and flavorful ingredient that can be used in many different meals from all over the world, as well as a great protein source.
