- Buy wild caught shrimp. Don't buy farm-raised. I assure you that you are only sacrificing flavor. Aim for the medium to large-sized shrimp, as well. More of a flavor impact!
- When buying, pay attention to the packaging. Buy shrimp that has already been deveined, shelled and cleaned. Tail-on or tail-off with this recipe is entirely up to you. I left the tail on for visual effect.
- Use as fresh of ingredients as you can. Fresh parsley, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and freshly minced (or pressed if you have a garlic press) garlic. Fresh is always best when it comes to maximizing flavor. Don't short yourself!
