How to write a recipe
Do you hesitate in sharing because you're not sure about how to write a recipe?
It's not difficult to write a professional style recipe but to make it really easy we've prepared a simple guide and all you need to do is fill in the blanks.
To publish your favorite shrimp or prawn recipe here on Shrimp Magic, just follow the guide below and we'll put your recipe on a dedicated web page exclusively for you.
Decide on a name for your recipe. The best recipe name, in
our opinion, describes the main ingredient and something about
what is special about the preparation. These are very basic
examples, I wouldn't be surprised if you are much more inventive. Examples:
- Grandma's Boiled Shrimp Recipe
- Hawaiian Coconut Shrimp
- Chinese Garlic Prawns
Heart-healthy Shrimp Stir Fry
Make a rough list of all your ingredients:
- put your ingredient list in the order which you use them in the recipe.
- decide how many servings your recipe makes
If you wish to adjust your recipe to a different number of
servings, use our recipe calculator (opens new
window.) You can also use this converter to change your
measurement between US or metric measurements.
- If you have one, get a picture of your finished preparation in .jpg format.

you want more ideas of how to adapt a recipe you got somewhere
else to be yours.
