Forgot the place I used to get them; but remember it had about 7 different sizes of shrimp and some even claimed to be unsalted , which is a big plus.

By the way, I grind them up fine, add them to soups, seafood burgers, stews, risottos, etc; really packs a "seafood" punch. I presume others do the same... how else would you use them?

    Great cooked along with pork to make the broth for soup dumplings (Xiao Long Bao).

        It's used to flavor various noodle dishes or pancit.
