Easy Salted Shrimp Recipe


Food Recipe | Easy Salted Shrimp Recipe – This was ungodly delicious! I made this exactly as stated except for adding a little more garlic, because I am a garlic fiend. I served it over spaghetti squash. My only complaint is that it should state “1 serving” as I could have finished the whole thing off myself. I made this in a cast iron pan which gave the shrimp a nice little crust. Don’t skip the caper brine; it gives the dish a nice depth of flavor! Enjoy!
