Garlic Lime Shrimp with Watermelon Salsa

Brighten up mealtime with our delicious sous vide garlic lime shrimp. To keep the shrimp firm and plump, we’ve added baking soda to the marinade, a trick which alters the pH level of the shrimp, helping them retain their shape. Served with a watermelon salsa dressed in sharp lime juice and velvety olive oil, this dish emanates ceviche-style freshness.
