Shrimp may be small in size but big with flavor. I was inspired by a shrimp recipe in a seafood cookbook that I have and made shrimp with a breadcrumb topping for dinner tonight that came out fabulous. The whole family said it was one of the best shrimp dishes they have ever had. You can have some fun with this and substitute shrimp for any other type of fish you like too.
So I encourage you to try this, it’s an easy recipe with amazing flavor.
