Recipe Origins: A Quick History Bite
Tracing back to Native American traditions, this dish is a modern twist on age-old seafood mastery, combining the land's bounty with the ocean's treasures.
- Shrimp is first tossed in a mixture of smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.
- Smoked paprika, also known as pimentón, is a spice made from dried and smoked red peppers. The peppers are dried and then ground into a fine powder. The peppers used to make smoked paprika are very mild and sweet, so they won't add heat.
- Shrimp has a distinct, sweet, and slightly briny flavor. It can impart a seafood essence to dishes, enhancing their overall taste. Shrimp's flavor works well with a variety of seasonings and culinary styles, making it a versatile ingredient for both mild and bold dishes.
- Shrimp cooks quickly, typically in just a few minutes. This makes it a convenient choice for busy cooks who want to prepare a meal in a short amount of time.
- For zucchini, corn, and garlic, they are sautéed in butter until tender and fragrant.
- Zucchini is a versatile vegetable that has a mild flavor, allowing it to take on the flavor of sauces or spices.
- Corn adds its signature sweet flavor to the recipe. Frozen corn kernels are perfect for this recipe, and there's no need to thaw. Just add them to the skillet, and they will cook quickly. Fresh corn on the cob can also be used.
