Old Bay Shrimp Burritos
Old Bay Shrimp Burritos -These were really amazing. I wanted to recreate the shrimp burrito I had at the neighborhood Mexican restaurant, and this recipe is spot on. The nicest burrito I’ve ever eaten in my life was one I even created, wrapped in foil, and stored in the refrigerator for two days. The night I intended to eat it, I simply placed it on a flat pan and browned each side.
No prank! Although I did not use avocado slices or cheese, I did use pico and shredded lettuce, and it was absolutely delicious. Make sure to taste the aioli before making it, and if you want to add more garlic powder, add more. You should also put some old Bay on your burrito. In addition, I substituted half a jalapeno for a bell pepper in the shrimp filling and a quarter of a jalapeno in the pico de gallo. If you get the pico de gallo, the rice, the beans, and the aoli right in this recipe, you’ll have the best burrito you’ve ever had.
