Which Shrimp to Use
For the shrimp, I recommend going with larger-sized, wild-caught shrimp. My favorite variety is Argentinian Red – this type of shrimp is large, juicy and has a similar flesh texture to lobster! I keep the seasonings on the shrimp simple and straightforward, to allow the chimichurri sauce to shine!
