garlic shrimpI love seafood, especially shrimp, fish, crab and lobster.One of my daughter favourite food is shrimp , any kind of shrimp recipe we give her, she will happily eat it all.Shrimp is so easy to cook, the key to have nice bite of shrimp is make sure not to over cooked it, otherwise it will be chewy. I always  boil the shrimp first for couple minutes until it turning pink, before I toss it with other ingredients.Here is our favourite recipe, easy to make , simple ingredient and quick to make.
