The Best Shrimp for Bruschetta Shrimp Pasta

This pasta dish is best served with our big and beautiful Wild Argentinian Red Shrimp. This shrimp is lean and protein-rich, with a rich texture and sweet taste like succulent lobster – you’re guaranteed to love it! Flash-frozen the day of catch, these shrimps come already peeled and deveined when they arrive to you.

To prepare shrimp for cooking, you must first thaw using either the refrigerator method or the cold-water method. Remove shrimp from bag and place in a strainer with a plate underneath. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Rinse well and drain. For faster thawing, remove shrimp from bag and place in a large bowl of cold water for approximately 10-20 minutes or until thawed. Make sure to use shrimp within 24 hours of thawing.
