Expert Tips

  • Don’t toss that sauce! Serve the shrimp in a bowl, and pour the delicious drippings over for dipping with bread.
  • Broiling is a quick and effective cooking method, but don’t try to multitask when you’re broiling. Stay close to the broiler, and keep an eye on bread and shrimp to make sure you don’t burn your yummy shrimp and baguette.
