Tips

If not properly managed, both wild-caught shrimp and farm-raised shrimp may cause damage to the ecosystems around them. You should look for shrimp that has been certified by an independent agency such as Wild American Shrimp and Marine Stewardship Council. Wild-caught shrimp is more likely to be sustainably caught than certified shrimp.

Toast pine nuts by placing them in a small skillet. Cook on medium heat until fragrant, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 4 minutes.
