How to Purchase and Store Raw Shrimp

Fresh shrimp should be firm, moist and translucent and should smell like the sea. Avoid those with black spots and any trace of ammonia odor. They can vary in color from grayish-green to pinkish-tan to light pink. Place in a bowl (if wrapped in plastic, punch a few holes in the plastic) and store in the coldest part of the refrigerator up to 1 day.

How to Slice Large-Leafed Fresh Herbs

Slice large-leafed herbs such as basil and mint, into thin strips by stacking several leaves on top of one another. Roll the stack lengthwise into a cylinder. Using a sharp knife, cut the cylinder crosswise to form fine shreds. This cut is called chiffonade. Be sure to use a sharp knife - a dull knife will bruise the leaves while cutting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just made this the other day and it turned out perfectly! I just made this the other day and it turned out perfectly! I love that there is no chopping involved for the tomatoes or the shrimp. It was super flavorful and creamy but not too heavy for summer. This recipe has made it into the "will make again" category.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful dish. Wonderful dish. Everyone loved it. I am anxious to make this again. I also want to try it with chicken instead of shrimp. I think that will be as good if not better than the shrimp. Thanks so much for the recipe
