Recipe Notes
Sugerencias del Chef Pepín: Prefiero procesar el camarón seco en casa en vez de comprarlos ya molido.
Antes de licuar el caldillo cerciórese que los ingredientes estén completamente frescos para que no salten al abrir la licuadora y nunca cocinar los camarones frescos por mucho tiempo, mientras más se cocina mas endurecen.
Servir con pan y limón o sobre arroz o pasta.
