Here’s a great quick dish that comes packed with big flavor. If you’re a shrimp lover, this Shrimp with Black Bean Sauce is a must try! The other nice thing about this dish is its versatility. You can really use whatever type or style of shrimp you like. If you want to use shell-on, that's fine. If you want to use pre-cooked, that works too. Cooking times will adjust slightly depending on what you use, but by and large, feel free to go nuts!
