Shrimp Chupe Recipe

A good shrimp suckling recipe can work as a first and second dish. It is an abundant meal that yields for many portions, so if you have many diners, you can leave them all happy with this preparation.

The shrimp suck is one of the most popular dishes. emblematic of Peruvian cuisine. It is also one of the most assimilated in other countries to become virtually their own.

It is one of my favorite soups. But it has to be well done. For example, those who do in Venezuelan restaurants do not like me.

The best suckers I have eaten at the house of Peruvian friends in Caracas and Madrid, or restaurants in Lima, Peru. And always shrimp. There is also Chicken Suck, and it's very delicious.
