Dried Shrimp Recipes
or . . . the TOP TEN ways to use dried shrimp
Dried Shrimp will plump up after being in water for a few minutes. So you can soak the shrimp in water or other cooking liquids to reconstitute.
As a flavoring . . .
in sushi rolls, gumbos, soups and chowders. Grind dried shrimp in a food processor. They are very salty and have strong flavor, so a little bit goes a long way. Add a little at a time. Keep tasting and adding a small amount more until the intensity of the flavor is to your liking.
Add whole shrimp . . .
to your gumbos, soups, chowders, and sushi rolls. You will most likely not need to add any salt to your broth when using these salty additions. They will reconstitute during the cooking process.
With Vegatables . . .
Reconstitute and fry in a pan with bacon and okra or Chinese cabbage and chicken stock. Dried shrimp are also good added to green beans or asparagus
With Tofu . . .
Braise with tofu and your choice of seasoning. Garlic, ginger and soy sauce go well with dried shrimp.
