  • Tip by LA COCINA GOYA: Saute Shrimp without Splatters
  • Oil that pops and bubbles can result in a messy countertop and dangerous burns. The likely culprit: moisture on the shrimp that leaks into the oil and causes the flare-ups. Next time, pat the shrimp dry with paper towels before cooking. If you're using frozen shrimp, make sure they're defrosted completely before drying.

We didn't care for these. They just tasted like adobo and paprika, the flavors weren't very balanced. Won't make these again.

Sooo good! The only problem was I didn't make enough! My husband found this absolutely tantalizing. The flavors are bended perfectly and I love the subtle kick it produces. Thank you for an excellent recipe!

I have made a lot of shrimp recipes from this site and this is definitely not a 4 or 5 as others have rated it. It's just a mediocre recipe. I won't make it again.
