New England Baked Shrimp is a very popular thing to eat in the New England Area. I had the pleasure of going to Hemenway's in Providence, RI for dinner, and eating Ellie's New England Baked Shrimp version of this popular dish.
I meet Ellie who is the creator of this version of baked stuff shrimp which are served at Hemenway's. which is what I had for dinner. A great meal that is so easy to make at home with the recipe she gave me.
Hemenway's is a very popular seafood restaurant in Rhode Island. They informed me that seafood is delivered every morning from yesterdays catch so it was in the ocean only one day before serving on a plate.
The only other time I have had seafood this fresh is when I would go to the docks and the fisherman are selling what they catch that day. Anyone who's from New England knows that seafood has a sweet taste when it's fresh and melts in your mouth.
How To Prepare the Shrimp
Here is Ellie's instruction for the recipe.
- To prepare your shrimp to run them under cold water.
- Then peel the shrimp.
- I always pull the tail off but they are served with tails at the restaurant.
- Make a small slice on the top of the vein and pull the vein out.
- Rinse and butterfly cut the shrimp and lay flat.
- Dry them off and sprinkle salt and pepper before you begin to stuff them.
If you can't find fresh shrimp buy frozen that are the wild-caught USA.
Thank you Hemenway for dessert that my mom could not get enough of when I brought home a piece for her to try.
And thank you Ellie for this wonderful recipe that I made 4 times already and is perfect every time!
