Notes

For you to make the best shrimp dish, you must first buy fresh shrimp of good quality.  Select those that smell of saltwater only.   You should also avoid shrimps with yellowing shells or those that feel gritty.

To properly peel your shrimp, you have to remove the shell before cooking if the shrimp will be served in hot liquid. No magic is required for cooking shrimp. You may even poach them for later use.

 Asparagus is one of the easiest vegetables to prepare. You can roast, steam, grill, or sauté in a pan. To prepare your asparagus, you should use a vegetable peeler to trim the tough, woody stems. Season and cook as desired.

 Once cut, Asparagus doesn't last very long. It also starts losing flavor quality quite quickly. If possible, cook and eat your asparagus the same day you buy it. Asparagus also doesn't reheat well. Only prepare enough you're going to eat for that day.

Basil is an excellent source of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C. It's also excellent in calcium, iron, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids. It is naturally a low fat and low sodium herb.

When buying basil, Select basil bunches that are bright in color with fresh, fragrant leaves and firm stems. Basil is very perishable and for or short-term storage
