Today Recipes | Easy Salted Shrimp Recipe – Simple and delicious. Shrimp were beautiful with a wonderful flavor. I did not change a thing. Be prepared to pull out the shrimp when they are done and finish the sauce separately. Smaller shrimp may cook faster than required to finish off the sauce and it is critical to avoid over cooking the shrimp. Have the ingredients fully prepped, as in measured and combined where appropriate and not just putting containers out on the counter. Husband calls this one a keeper. Enjoy!
