Expert Tips

  • Uncooked shrimp in the shell, often referred to as "green shrimp", should smell fresh with no "fishy" aroma.
  • To save time, pick up a package of coleslaw mix in the produce section. Use 3 cups coleslaw mix instead of the 1/2 head cabbage.
  • Garnish plates with Green Onion Brushes. To make, cut each green onion 2 inches above root; slice off end of root. From root end, make 2 or 3 cuts into onion. Make 2 or 3 more cuts at a right angle to first cuts. Place in ice water until flower opens up.
