Fishy Tasting Shrimp?
by Pamela Dace
Okay, I think I have the perfect quick and easy one-dish guest meal. I purchase frozen, cooked, shelled, de-veined shrimp from an expensive specialty store that claims the shrimp have never been thawed. (I thaw it in the refrig in a colender.)
I boil some penne, and drop the shrimp in the water the last few seconds to get it hot without overcooking. Then I drain and toss in a bowl with olive oil, fresh lemon juice and zest, and fresh parsley. I add stir-fried asparagus, artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and pinenuts .... then top with fresh grated parmesean.
Problem is ... the shrimp tastes fishy! (I don't want to try to mask the taste with creamy sauce because everyone wants to eat lighter than that.) Please help!
