Nina's Tip

Nina’s Tip #1: *Shrimp should always be fresh! But if you can only get frozen shrimp, be sure to cook the shrimp before you add it to your pot. Frozen shrimp are imported and pumped up with water to look nice. The water pumped into the shrimp will ruin your meal. So, cook the shrimp separately, then add it to your dish.

Cooking the shrimp for Nina's Barbecue Shrimp dish


On medium to high heat, melt the butter, then add garlic and the remaining seasonings. Place shrimp in the sauce. Stir the butter to coat the shrimp. DO NOT OVER COOK SHRIMP. Cook on one side 3 minutes and flip for another 2 to 3 minutes. You will notice that when the shrimp turn pink, the shrimp meat will slightly separate from the top of the shell, then it’s done.
