"Argentine Red shrimp taste like lobster if cooked right,but on minute too long and "ouch""

Serves 5 | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 9 - 10 minutes

Why I Love This Recipe

When Argentine reds first hit the market a few years ago, we tried them and found them to be delicious. We've made them with butter and garlic, we've made them in a scampy you name it. But when my kids are around, they always ask for the "steak shrimp". Give it a try, as weird as it sounds, it works really well.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 pounds of Argentine red shrimp, we like the 16 - 20 size
1/2 a small bottle of A-1 Steak Sauce
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper


peel your Argentine red shrimp and place the cleaned shrimp in a bowl

sprinkle the shrimp with salt and pepper

use about half a small bottle of A-1 or equivalent steak sauce into the bowl. Mix well, so all the shrimp get a coating. Let them sit, covered for at least half an hour.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees

Take a baking sheet, and cover it with aluminum foil

When you're ready to go, lay the marinated shrimp on the foil, straightening them out as best you can and leaving about a quarter inch or more between them

Pop them in the oven and shut the door as quick as possible.

We want to bake them for probably 9 - 10 minutes at most. NOTE>> Argentine red shrimp are indeed wonderful. But something ugly happens if you over cook them, they change texture so much you don't even know they're shrimp. So please, watch that time.

Remove from the oven, and use a flat spatula to scoop up the shrimp and transfer them to individual plates

Pairs Well With

These go especially well with home made "steak fries"
