As I said before, I make a lot of seafood recipes and quite a few are shrimp recipes so a bag of frozen shrimp are usually in my freezer at all times. However, not to long ago I came across shrimps from Argentina.
I buy these shrimps at one of my local markets that sells foods from different places around the world, and lucky for me, they always have these Argentinian Shrimp that I swear to you taste like lobster! They are my ultimate favorite shrimp to buy!
I have written about these delicious shrimp in past posts and have said that if you are lucky enough to live in a place where Argentinian shrimp are sold, PLEASE OH PLEASEEE buy these!!! I promise you won’t regret it! They’re just fabulousssssss!
But no worries, you can use any fresh or frozen raw shrimps for this recipe.
