"Quick, easy, and tasty."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 26, 2012

"I'm confused as to why we should cook already cooked shrimp for an additional 3-4 minutes? To my way of thinking, it would make the shrimp tough and rubbery. It only takes about 4 minutes to saute peeled, deveined, uncooked shrimp. I think this would produce a better result."
