Hyman’s Seafood is known for its shrimp, which are made with the use of a blender and no meat.
But when I asked the company if they could create the same recipe using a meatless shrimp, I got a rather interesting response: Yes, you can.
The shrimp are then boiled in water, which is then simmered in a blender until they are slightly runny and tender.
Hyman says the process is “like making a salad,” so the final product is a “rich, flavorful dish.”
You can see the recipe below.
It requires about 10 minutes of cooking time, so you’ll want to make sure you’re not overcooked before you eat it.
