Royal Red Shrimp

I found some Royal Red Shrimp at Whole Foods market this week. They were already peeled and sold raw/peeled/deveined by the pound. They did not look like shrimp. They looked just like a mass of some kind of raw seafood you could not discern individual shrimp. Is this normal for selling this kind of shrimp? If they were individual shrimp they certainly were not very large, about the size of "salad shrimp". You know the ones that are like 61-70 ct.

  1. never seen them ! shrimp need to look like shrimp !!! if not find ones that do . master j saxton

    1. Like most shrimp, Reds can be found in all sizes. The ones you saw were the really small ones. If you find them in a normal size, try them broiled; very tasty!
