Shrimp And Garlic, What A Combination 🍽️ Trying Out New Recipes
Having seafood for dinner here in Suriname is truly a treat, as it's rather expensive, especially when going for the larger ones. That's why we've been putting off preparing shrimp and then the opportunity presented itself and I got to try out something new in our kitchen.
First, the shrimp had to be washed and cleaned and as I was removing the heads and legs, it was brought to my attention to leave the shell and legs to let the flavors be soaked up by those.
Then a little bit of salt to taste, pepper and Suriname's finest brown sugarcane rum (not sponsored) was added to the cleaned shrimp and was left to soak up the flavors for a few minutes.
During that time some of our very own scallions got chopped and the pre-chopped garlic got removed from the refrigerator.
Olive oil and a little bit of butter then went into the frying pan on the stove, along with the garlic and I let the garlic heat up with the oils. During this process I had to stand by and watch out that the garlic didn't burn.
When the garlic became golden brown, the shrimp went into the pan with the sauce and as I kept stirring I added some drops of sesame oil and some drops of lemon.
After that, in went the scallions and I let it cook for a few minutes. Not too long, as shrimp doesn't need that much of cooking time, otherwise it'll get rubbery hard when eating.
And that was my new recipe folks, which was pretty delicious if I can say so myself. The only hindsight that I have, is that I could've added some chilies for a little bit of a kick. Oh well, next time. What about you? Tried any new recipes lately?
