This seafood can save your weeknights. Naturally low in fat, quick to cook, and downright delicious, shrimp have a lot going for them. But if you pass them by at the supermarket because of the painful peeling process, you need this trick.
Instead of standing over the sink before you’ve even started cooking, painstakingly removing every scrap of shell, peel them after they’re cooked! It’s not only easier to get the shells off after they’ve gotten the heat treatment but also better for the tender meat--and potentially the taste of your recipe. A lot of the flavor of shellfish hides in their shells, so save a bit of the water you cook them in and use it in the rest of your dish to upgrade the flavor of everything from pasta to seafood stews.
Saving you time, protecting your fingers, and making your dinner tastier--now that’s a kitchen hack!
