Seafood modern cooking successfully uses when creating their masterpieces. For example, shrimp. Even some two decades ago, hardly anyone could have imagined that shrimps would be so firmly included in their lives. First, the shrimps were not only deficient, but also a delicacy, and secondly, they were not easily accessible to ordinary people. And few people understood how to clean them, how to cook, with what to combine. Today, in any supermarket shrimp will not see anyone. The price for this delicacy is also available, and therefore shrimps have become not only a great snack for beer, but also they are successfully added to salads, etc.
