If you grew up in a Latin household like I did, chances are that you’re very familiar with Maggi. My mom and grandma used Maggi bouillon and “cubitos Maggi” for everything from rice dishes to soups and even salad dressings. For this recipe, I used Maggi in the shrimp marinade and also added some chicken bouillon to the chimichurri sauce. I just love the extra boost of flavor that it gave this dish.
