Commonly Asked Questions
What can I use as a substitute for white wine?
Suppose you are not fond of white wine and are not a fan of the taste but you still want to make a mean shrimp scampi. Are there alternatives? Yes, there can be alternatives for white wine in making shrimp scampi. For instance, apple cider vinegar is considered to be the best alternative. Apple cider vinegar has a sweet taste that is somewhat similar to white wine. Another alternative ingredient for you to use is white grape juice. However, white grape juice is sweet so you might want to add vinegar to it.
How do I know if my shrimp is fresh?
It is pretty easy to distinguish whether or not the shrimp displayed in the market is fresh. First, just like in any animal produce, observe the smell. Now, shrimp has a slightly salty smell. If a shrimp smells strongly of ammonia, then it is spoiled. Next is to observe the color. Fresh shrimps are usually white and slightly transparent. Thirdly, check if the shells are firm and glossy. If the shells feel slimy and soft to the touch, it is like the shrimp has gone bad. Lastly, check the eyes. Fresh shrimp should have bright shiny eyes.
