Parsley help please....will using dried make a big difference in this recipe?

And what exactly does parsley do for a recipe?

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/melissa-darabian/lemony-shrimp-scampi-pasta-recipe2/index.html

Sorry, can't do a clicky. I'm thinking about trying this tonight instead of the usual boiled shrimp. I only have dried parsley. Will it make a difference?

  • I always use dried parsley...though last time I did shrimp I did actually buy fresh and it was really good

    don't think it matters that much though *that was the only time I have ever used fresh

  • Give it a try. Parsley brings out other flavors in recipes.

  • No. I use dried all the time it brings out the natural taste in your meat I would broil the meat instead but that is just me.

  • It turned out pretty good. A tad too much lemon. Next time I will reduce it.
