5 Argentine Shrimp Recipes to Try Out

Argentine shrimp recipes are a must-try for any seafood lover. These delicious sea creatures are known to have an excellent taste and texture. They are sweet, firm, and vibrant red, and when cooked, the meat is light pink with a clean taste that’s similar to lobster. These shrimp are also great for grilling.

Here are five Argentine shrimp recipes that you simply must try:

1. Argentine Shrimp in Classic White Wine Sauce

This is a classic shrimp recipe. For this recipe, first chop 4 cloves of garlic finely and sauté it in oil in a frying pan until it turns golden brown. Add 1½ lb. shrimp and cook for 4 minutes, then add 4½ oz. of white wine, ½ cup of parsley, and a pinch of salt to taste. Cook for another 2 minutes on low heat until the alcohol has evaporated, and serve.

2. Argentine Shrimp in Garlic and Butter Sauce

Many people use this recipe because of how the garlic can add some kick to their dish. First, take a pan and add 4 tbsp. of butter to it. Once it melts, add 4 garlic cloves. Cook for a few minutes until you get a pleasant fragrance. Now, add the shrimp (about 1 lb.) and sprinkle ¼ cup of chopped parsley over it. Cook for 3 minutes on each side. Finally, sprinkle salt, pepper, and lemon juice over the cooked shrimp.

3. Argentine Shrimp in Tomato Sauce

The tomato sauce makes this recipe more nutrient-rich than many other recipes for breaded shrimp. The breading is made using bread crumbs that are mixed with 1 to 2 oz. of parmesan cheese, oregano, and fresh parsley. This mixture provides a pleasant aroma to the shrimp when they are cooked. The fried shrimp is then cooked with a combination of spices and tomato sauce to give it an extra tangy and sweet taste. You can also add some cheese if you want extra flavor!

4. Grilled Argentine Shrimp with Charred Vegetables

To marinate the Argentine shrimp, mix 1 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of red wine vinegar, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a large bowl. Add the cleaned and deveined Argentine shrimp and stir around until they are all coated with the marinade. Put them in a Ziplock bag and then refrigerate for an hour or so before grilling. This dish tastes great with grilled vegetables such as grilled mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions.

5. Argentine Shrimp Creole-Style Recipe

This recipe is slightly different from traditional Creole-style dishes because it uses coconut milk instead of tomato paste as the base for the sauce. The coconut milk gives this dish a sweet flavor that pairs well with the shrimp. Toss your deveined shrimp in butter and then add ½ cup of coconut milk and let it simmer on a slow heat until your shrimp turns somewhat opaque. Add salt, pepper, some chili flakes and garnish it with chives and cilantro.
