If Chicago is known for it’s hot dogs and New York City for it’s pizza, then Key West should be known for it’s delecetable pink shrimp.
Wild caught Key West Pink Shrimp can be found in so many dishes from a gumbo to a paella, but one of our favorites is still the traditional peel and eat.
The recipe is as easy as the shrimp are good. Steamed in the shell for maximum flavor.
It doesn’t get much easier.
