Oh My! Oh My! Oh My!

ONLY FOUR DAYS Y’ALL!!!!

Are we ready? Are we really ready?

Did you see that Shrimp up there? The one that’s all pretty and crusty and golden brown and just filled with all sorts of deliciousness? That right there is an Argentinean Red Shrimp. It’s pretty much the shrimp dreams are made of. Or at least this Salt & Pepper Shrimp was made with them ūüėČ

You need this shrimp in your life. I need this shrimp in MY life. This shrimp is as sweet as lobster y’all. Not even kidding. Serve with a simple Panzanella Salad and let the swooning ensue.

Yep. We are so ready.

  • 2 tsp. California Blend Cracked Pepper, or your favorite pepper

 Directions:

Devein shrimp by using kitchen shears to cut down the back side of the shrimp to expose veins. Remove veins while leaving shell on and in tact. Set aside. Blend cornstarch, peppers and salt in a ziplock bag. Add shrimp in batches to coat with mixture.

Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium high. Gently place shrimp in hot oil in a single layer. Allow shrimp to cook one minute on each side. These shrimp cook very fast and you do not want to overcook so be careful to keep the cooking time to 2-3 minutes max.

Remove from pan and drain on paper towels. Place back in a bowl and toss with additional cracked pepper and pink salt. Garnish with radishes, red jalapeno and fresh Cilantro.
