Squid Cooks: Shrimp Scampi
I'd like to think I've come a long way since then. I still find working alongside my wife in the kitchen to be intimidating but I'm not put off by the work itself. Even so, I was amused to see that the package of shrimp my wife got for me was already deveined, though she admitted that was all they had at the store. Even funnier is the fact that in his recipe for shrimp scampi in How to Cook Everything: The Basics, Mark Bittman admits that he doesn't even bother with deveining. I guess he doesn't enjoy that job any more than I did 19 years ago.
Cooking shrimp, once peeled, is frightfully simple. Daughter loves shrimp so she was an easy sell. The pan sauce was tasty, too.
