Shrimps with Two Sauces

My family and I love shrimps, all kinds, and we eat a lot of them with good conscience. They are a good source of protein, and have many minerals and vitamins-including D-vitamins. You can eat lots of them without being punished by the bathroom scales. If you buy them frossen, be sure and thaw them in the refrigerator 4-5 hours before preparing them. If you buy them with whole, you will need to de-shell them. Start by holding the middle of the shrimp with one hand and pull the head off. Then pull the tail off. Remove the middle of the scales together with any roe. The recipe that follows may not be calorie friendly, but it sure taste good.
