Notes

Shrimp Cooking Tips:

 
Do not overcook shrimp!  I cannot stress this enough.  As soon as the shrimp turn pink on both sides, they are done.  Shrimp will become chewy or rubbery if they are overcooked.  Typically, it takes 3 to 5 minutes to cook shrimp depending on their size.  Shrimp have a very mild flavor.  They need lots of seasoning.
