Latin Style Sauteed Shrimps

Updated on September 17, 2013

Cooking With Fresh Shrimps

To me shrimps are really scrumptious and can be a great addition to so many dishes they make their way into all kinds of cuisine from appetizers to soups and main courses.

Cooking shrimp is easier than you think but I believe you have to start with fresh shrimp because it gives you the best flavors but with fresh shrimp you have to peel and devein the shrimp and that's not really that hard all you have to do is grab a pairing knife then make a slit right down the back of the shrimp the peel of the shell back away from the shrimp leaving the tip giving you a way to handle the shrimps.

Now we have to remove the vein and that can be a little tricky what you need to do is look along the back there you will see the vein using the tip of your knife and start removing the vein you can even run the shrimp under cool water that might make it a little bit easier it might take a minute of your time but it will be worth it when your done your shrimp is ready for cooking.

Making Sautéed Shrimps

Now that you know a little bit about shrimp let me share with you a quick way to sauté them.

Get some butter and place it in a hot pan add your shrimp to the pan make sure you give your shrimp a little space to enjoy the butter and adding to many shrimp will make them steam not sauté and that is not what you want now if you really want some nice sauté shrimps cook the shrimps for 2 to 4 minutes and only flipping them one time if you flip them after that let them finish cooking on the other side you can tell when your shrimps are done when they are pink in color so try this just the taste of shrimps and butter will really surprise you.
