Tiger shrimp

Tiger shrimp

You buy tiger shrimp frozen from your local grocery store. They are available both raw as well as cooked. Buy the raw ones, they are easily identifiable by their gray color. Here we serve them with a nice lemon and oil mix that go great together with avocado.

  1. You must try shrimp on the grill over very very hot coals. 2-3 min per side. It helps a lot to use skewers. Works well with dry pack scallops also.
