Frequently Asked Questions

What can I use as a substitute for prosciutto?

If you don’t have prosciutto on hand, you can always use ham or bacon. A word of caution, though, you should use thinly cut ham or bacon to be able to have that prosciutto-like results. 

How can I determine the freshness of the shrimp?

There are obvious clues that shrimps that are sold are no longer fresh. For instance, there is that obvious odor. Sure, a shrimp naturally smells fishy, but when a shrimp is no longer fresh, it exhibits a foul fishy odor. Another thing to look at is whether or not the shell of the shrimp is slimy. If you’re not sure how to determine the freshness of the shrimp, head over to the freezer section. The shrimps inside in the freezer section have a guaranteed freshness to them.
