Tip By La Cocina Goya

Sauté Shrimp without Splatters

Oil that pops and bubbles can result in a messy countertop and dangerous burns. The likely culprit: moisture on the shrimp that leaks into the oil and causes the flare-ups. Next time, pat the shrimp dry with paper towels before cooking. If you’re using frozen shrimp, make sure they’re defrosted completely before drying.
