Welcome to Like or Dislike, where you get to share how you really feel about ingredients from the pantry, ingredients I'm thinking about adding to my pantry, other seasonal foods, and favorite cooking gear. The things you like are sure to find their way to the recipes here on The Perfect Pantry, so do tell.
This week, a no-brainer for me. I love shrimp. Love, with a capital L. On a visit to New Orleans a bunch of years ago, I ate fresh Gulf shrimp at least twice a day, every day (and yes, some breakfasts might have been involved). Those who are allergic to shellfish have my complete sympathy, for they are destined to a life without shrimp. The only trick to preparing shrimp is to not overcook it. Shrimp take just two minutes to cook, and ignoring them for longer guarantees you will have a tough, chewy ball of seafood. Cooked just right, shrimp are sweet, almost buttery, and they love to dress in a nice, spicy sauce. If you are a shrimp lover, what's your favorite way to serve them?
