While Cooking Shrimp Recipes – Skip These GoofUps

Among the huge variety of seafood Shrimp is one of the most widely used as you can prepare many variant recipes using it as one of the main ingredient. It is the richest source of protein with cooking time which is far less in comparison to other meat types. In market it is available in many different forms such as frozen, raw etc. So it all depends on your choice and cooking expertise which one you want to try your hand at.

But beware it’s not that easy, but you can take this challenge simply by keeping the following listed points in your mind while cooking the shrimp recipe.

You may hardly get to read such tips anywhere else as I have tried to represent all of them in a much better way.

Read here one by one as follows:

Once Purchase Cook Immediately:

Shrimps are very delicate they lose their taste very soon. So after every purchase of the shrimp never ever wait for more than 24hrs to cook them. As they are available in far flung sea beach areas so already they are kept frozen during the transportation process. So if possible cook them immediately otherwise they may taste like Ammonia which means throw them into the dustbin. The one’s which are good to use for cooking taste like briny and are very fresh.

Hope You had great Christmas and New Year holidays. You all must have enjoyed your favorite food with friends and family. Same here, together with my family members I enjoyed much and did lots of fun with friends in California. I like gossiping that is my hobby and sharing recipe ideas with my friends is mostly the topic of discussion. This New Year eve party my friends were discussing about simple and easy recipes which most of them had cooked and enjoyed eating. During the party I met a friend, Rob who was talking about Italian recipes with marsala wine. And he had made many mouthwatering dishes using marsala wine as one of the ingredients.  

So, after New-year’s  hangover I went through internet and browsed recipes for marsala wine. I was surprised to see thousands of recipes with marsla wine. I tried chicken marsala recipe on third day of new year. Taste was awesome. 

Check one of them which I have shared as below.
