If you love shrimp, then you will probably want to eat it as often as possible. Still, there are only so many times you can eat steamed shrimp, even if you turn it into shrimp salad almost every time. Chinese-style salt and pepper shrimp is another great way to enjoy. Still, not everyone knows how to make that authentic recipe. In the meantime, here are some other tasty ways to enjoy your next batch of shrimp!
Shrimp and Grits
Shrimp and grits first started gaining popularity in the 1980s, at least beyond the South. Along with the shrimp, you’ll have to cook the grits. It’s simple: 1 part grits and 4 parts water boiled and simmered until the water is absorbed. Butter, cheese, bacon, garlic, parsley, scallions, and lemon juice all take this dish to the next level.
Shrimp is easy to roast, easier than you can believe. All you need is some peeled shrimp and an oiled baking sheet. Pop them in the oven and roast at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes and you’ll make some magic.
With the high temperatures of June and July inbound, you’ll need something that’s cold and refreshing. That’s where ceviche comes into the picture. Start by steaming some deveined shrimp. One minute in boiling water should be enough; put them in ice water to help cool them down faster.
Treat yourself! If you love chicken nuggets, then you know how much the right breading can make a difference. Have you tried popcorn shrimp before? Don’t let a bad experience turn you off to it. Give it another go by mixing up some water, cornstarch, and eggs in a bowl. You’ll also want to make breadcrumbs from scratch with garlic and onions but in a separate bowl. Then you’ll need some peeled and deveined shrimp. Coat them with the wet mixture and then dip into the breadcrumbs.
