These brochettes are very special because the shrimps’ flavor when they are fried is quite good and if we add to this that they come marinated in achiote salsa, the flavor becomes sensational.
– The achiote salsa gives to the food a flavor that is strong, peppery, spicy. slightly smoky and with nutty notes. All this combination generates very interesting effects when it is united with the delicate and sweetish flavor of the shrimps.
But that’s not all because the color that the shrimps acquire is spectacular since they turn into an intense red color. A color that really whets the appetite. The achiote’s color is so beautiful that even the Mayans used it to paint.
This dish is flexible because it can be served as appetizer or as a main course and for garnish it can be added: white rice, pot beans or a salad. Oh and don’t forget that these shrimps are excellent for a barbecue with friends.
