Sautéed Shrimp


by: Umberto

Shrimp will have more flavor if sautéed in the shell, but your guests will then have to peel them while they are hot and oily. The choice is yours. Because they don’t need to be cooked over the same extremely high heat that scallops demand, any oil or cooking fat can be used.
