Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Criollo shrimp can be found on every island in the Caribbean and in as many variations. Add 2 tsp. chopped Scotch Bonnet peppers like they do in the Dominican Republic or 1 can (14-1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, like they do in Puerto Rico!
How to Butterfly Shrimp
Peel and devein shrimp by cutting about three fourths of the way into flesh, without cutting all the way through along its outer curve just deep enough to see vein. Peel back shell under running water, loosening vein with fingers. Lay peeled shrimp on flat surface and flatten it open.
Great at Parties
Prepare as directed, omitting the rice. Spear each shrimp with a toothpick and place on a platter for your guests to pass and enjoy!
