Grill, bake, roast, steam or poach your shrimp
When purchasing shellfish, it’s important to ensure you’re sourcing your supply from a quality, uncontaminated source – and nothing could make a person calmer in that regard than knowing they’re sourcing their shellfish from Alaska, whose pristine waters are a paradise are for quality, clean and sustainable seafood. Not only is the activity of the seafood industry highly regulated, with some of the most celebrated sustainability and environmental friendliness initiatives overseen by local, state and federal regulators, but the size and quality of Alaskan seafood is unmatched. Take shrimp, for example: Virtually no other shrimp in the world can match the impressive size — and coveted flavor — of Alaskan shrimp. In honor of this coveted specimen from the depths of the sea, let’s take a look at some shrimp recipes…
First, know that shrimp are an incredibly versatile ingredient and you can do just about anything with them. They can be served whole with heads and skins, they can be peeled and deveined, they can be butterflyed , they can be cut into tiny pieces… you get the picture. Additionally, they can be baked, fried, poached, steamed, boiled, grilled, or fried. When cooking shrimp, it is not necessarily the cooking method that is decisive (since they can be perfectly cooked with any cooking method), but rather the seasoning of the shrimp and the knowledge of the cooking time. These are the most important aspects of any shrimp recipe.
First, a classic prep: Just take whole shelled Alaskan shrimp (maybe cut off the head, no more) and cook them in a saucepan of water with a few generous sprinkles of Old Bay seasoning for about 2-3 minutes cook on medium (do not boil) and finally serve with a pot of cocktail sauce or melted (and clarified) butter with lemon wedges – a spectacular hit at any finger food event.
Marinate as many
Next idea: Marinate as many peeled and deveined shrimp as you like in a sauce made with extra virgin olive oil, garlic cloves, rosemary, chili sauce, teriyaki sauce, ginger root and a dash of bourbon (just add all of these ingredients together and mix for a few seconds). Allow the marinade to sit for a few hours, then thread the shrimp onto skewers and grill for about two minutes on each side.
