I don't entertain much this space with Non-vegetarian items. Though, we eat the chicken family (including egg) weekly once. But when it comes to seafood, I rarely cook - if you are regular reader you should know the reason. I am the sole seafood lover in my home and sheer laziness prevent cooking just for myself. I usually keep a frozen deveined shrimps packet in my freezer and whenever I crave some, just throw in my Ramen. That is it! Sounds not complicated right, try it with some mint ,coriander leaves and dash of chili sauce at the end, you have and hearty meal. Ok, this post is not about the soup, is an attempt to make eat shrimps to my son. Yes, seafood is disgusting, stinking even declared as bug to his mom. I don't know where he learnt about those poor shrimps. As the chicken 65 are vanished from his plate - I swept the chicken to shrimps one day. They were totally soft and juicy but he refused to touch probably I scared him - once grown up we cannot sneak anymore to the kids :( But hey, that was a total feast for the mom who doesn't have to share a single piece :)
Tip how to prevent curling the shrimp:
If you want to keep the shrimp straight while deep frying or for the tempura. Give a slit in few places at the bottom side (tummy). Next keep the tummy side down and slightly press with fingers the upper side (deveined side), give little pressure too much will break the shrimp. Clean and trim the tail from dirt.
Have a look to my slideshow!
I have done the slits just for 2 or 3 shrimps, who cares the presentation when the food is tasty.
