Say what? I know, who cooks using a soda drink....oh wait, you say pop instead. 😉
Seriously, soda...pop....either way you say it, I'm sure you'd agree that this Caramelized Shrimp with 7UP will be a favorite in your kitchen too once you try it!
CARAMELIZED SHRIMP INGREDIENTS:
And served with garlic fried rice and salted duck eggs with tomatoes, red onions and cilantro? My. MOUTH. IS. WATERING!!!!
Oh, and the shrimp can also be served as an appetizer if you want. Just a bit messy to eat, but if you have a themed party that you serve all "hands-on" food, this would be a hit!
WHERE TO BUY FRESH SHRIMPS:
Here are two places where I buy my shrimps: Seafood City if you feel like driving out to the city. Or Franco's Pescheria in Lake Zurich ~ tell Frank we said hello! Check out our last date night there!
For this you would want to get shrimps with head and tails on. It's more flavorful. You just need to clean and devein the shrimp, or you can have your fishmonger clean them for you.
HOW TO MAKE IT:
After cleaning the shrimp, just place them on a single layer in a skillet with 8oz of 7UP plus 1T of olive oil . Alternatively, you can use any lemon lime soda for this recipe.
Turn the flame on to medium high heat, uncovered. Stirring the shrimp occasionaly to prevent them from burning. Once all the liquid has cooked through, it's time to serve! That's it! See I told you it's super easy!!
Meanwhile, I really hope you make this and please let me know how it turns out. Would love your comments.
