Among the most versatile crustaceans out there, shrimps are a popular ingredient for appetizers and main courses.
The reason behind the humble shrimp’s popularity is its delicate taste and the ease with which it can be cooked. A shrimp can be prepared in just a matter of minutes when it’s pan-fried. The succulent texture and sweet taste make it stand out from other seafood too. Moreover, its ability to remain frozen for a long time offers immense convenience.
There are numerous ways to prepare shrimp dishes at home and in restaurants. As the food industry has evolved, cooks all over the world have come up with all kinds of sauces, vinaigrettes, and condiments to compliment shrimp dishes. Let’s explore some below.
