BISTRO TIP #1: PINCH OFF YOUR SHRIMP TAILS
To take off a shrimp tail before cooking, pinch where the tail meets the body and gently pull. The rest of the shrimp should pull cleanly out of the tail. Voila!
BISTRO TIP #2: SKEWER YOUR SHRIMP
If you are grilling or broiling, skewering your shrimp on a wood skewer will make flipping while cooking super simple! Usually, shrimp only needs about 2 minutes per side.
BISTRO TIP #3: LET YOUR FISH COOK!
Resist the urge to flip your fillets over and over again! Instead, leave it to cook on one side 70%, then flip only once for best results.
BISTRO TIP #4: WHEN FRYING FISH, TRY COD
If you're battering and frying fish, cod is a great choice. The fish holds up well and it’s excellent for cutting into chunks for tasty recipes like fish tacos.
BISTRO TIP #5: ELEVATED MUSSEL ETIQUETTE
Feeling fancy? When serving mussels in the shell with a sauce, make sure to provide guests with a bowl to discard empty shells and crusty bread to soak up that flavorful sauce.
