If you remember my May 27, 2020 blog post, Florida Sea Grant started a series of seafood-centric Facebook LIVE cooking demonstration videos with step-by-step instructions for preparing seafood at home. Season 1 of Seafood at Your Fingertips LIVE was a huge success! Season 2 started back up in September with a whole new series of videos. The weekly series is at 6:00pm ET on Wednesdays on Florida Sea Grant’s Facebook page.
On November 4, 2020, I’ll be cooking an easy and quick shrimp scampi recipe. This recipe can be made with any type of shrimp that you like. I used royal red shrimp in my recipe since it’s my favorite of the Florida species of shrimp. Below you’ll find the recipe and ingredients so you can cook along with me! If you can’t catch the demonstration live, this video and all of the demonstrations will be archived for future viewing on Facebook and the Seafood at Your Fingertips LIVE website.
How to Cook Along
This recipe is quick and easy. If you wanted to cook along with me during the demonstration video you definitely could. Below is the ingredient list. You can get a preview of the steps I’ll be taking by downloading the Seafood Recipe – Shrimp Scampi. The ingredients below will yield approximately 4 servings. I’ll see you on Facebook on November 4, 2020!
