Ever walk by the seafood deli section in the store and see this delicious shrimp on sale but do not buy it just because you have no idea what to do with it? Well, I have the perfect recipe for you. It’s simple, quick, and delicious. I would say this dish remind me a little of Thailand. I love rice noodles and with some fresh garlic shrimp on it, it makes my mouth water.
Also when you do walk by that seafood deli section and buy that shrimp, buy the ones that have not bean cleaned. The deli will charge you more for cleaned shrimp and it is so easy to clean it yourself.
