Notes and Tips

Pay attention to the cooking point: It is important not to overcook the seafood, as they can lose their texture and flavor. Make sure to cook them just the right time so they are tender and juicy.

Strain the sauce: When blending the mixture of seafood and liquids, it is important to strain the sauce to ensure it is smooth and without lumps.

Adjust the flavor at the end: Add salt and pepper at the end of the preparation, after having tasted the sauce. Seafood already contributes a strong flavor, so it is important not to overdo the amount of salt and pepper.

Decorate with fresh parsley: Adding a few sprigs of fresh parsley on the sauce just before serving will give it a touch of color and freshness.

Some tricks to enhance the flavor of this delicious sauce are:

Use the shrimp heads to enhance the flavor of the sauce.

Add a pinch of sweet paprika to provide a smoky touch.
