I employed frozen shrimp in a paper box from Asian shops, imported from Central America. I shelled and deveined the shrimps and butterflied them. They are sweet and briny, extremely close to the amazing sweet and fresh shrimps located in Italy.
  • You may minimize the shrimp into huge pieces or butterfly the shrimp. I chose to butterfly them as they appear quite.
