KEY TIP FOR THE BEST BUTTER GARLIC SHRIMP SCAMPI
Nobody likes mushy and soft shrimp. I strongly advice to buy wild fresh shrimp rather than the farmed shrimp that is usually softer.
If you can’t find the fresh one in your local supermarket, use my key tip to firm them up.
Brine them! It will help keep them juicy and firm. Just let them sit in a salt/sugar water for 15-30 min, then drain and cook.
Baking soda-¼ tsp.
Serve this Garlic butter shrimp scampi with a pile of noodles, bread, veggies or rice.
