Would you eat Non Domestic Shrimp

Picked up 2 blocks of 21/25 Ocean Garden Shrimp from my spot for shrimp cocktail....was busy yakking on my cell phone so I just grabbed the OG boxes and headed off.

Turns out it was not the typical non STP Gulf shrimp I get but it was from India with the STP in it...

Junk the shrimp or would you serve it.

          Chem, now you're shouting at yourself! When I lived in NYC, I got used to those who talked to themselves, as there are many, but the ones who shouted at themselves made me nervous!

            Get out of my head, Cat-Man. Get out. Argh!

            (I lived in Berkeley for many years. I am very familiar with people who talk to themselves)

                    Probably before your time!

                Hahaha! I do live in nyc and the ones who shout make me cross the street to avoid them....

          2. Shrimps are dunzo. Heh, if I figuered I had to post a question on them, it was halfway to the trash already.

  's my own fault for not checking the box thoroughly.

            1. There is very little domestic (if you mean the US of A) shrimp. But if I couldn't return it, I'd do something with it before I threw it out.
