I have a question that I'm sure will be answered even if its not the OP.

When talking shrimp in plural, is it "shrimp" or "shrimps"?

I use the word shrimp, but hear "shrimps" now and again.

In American English, the plural is shrimp. In British/Canadian/Australian English (which is typically the version people in the rest of the world learn), it's shrimps. Like "color" vs. "colour."

Avocados with shrimps

I'm always amused when we visit Mexico. "We have shrimps in garlic sauce, shrimps a la plancha, shrimps on a wire..."

I've always talked about shrimp, singular or plural, as shrimp. The Canadian half of my family also called the plural, " shrimp."

BTW, welcome to DC, Titan!

Mexicans are the sweetest, most polite, and patient people in the world. My Spanish is worse than horrible, but they always appreciate my effort.

Hey, I can count up to ocho, can ask for the baño, and can figure out months and days of the week. Sometimes. I can also puzzle through a menu.

Is it me or are there some missing ingredients? What goes in the avocado coulis? Is the garlic mixed with anything for a marinade? Are the shrimp peeled and deveined before serving?

Being Canadian, having lived in the States and abroad, I'm not sure where my spelling comes from but to me "shrimps" is just wrong. It is like saying "feets".

If I look in a tank and see them swimming around I would say - Those are shrimp. or We are having shrimp for supper.

to my way of thinking - shrimps would be used to describe something else in the plural, "those tomatoes are not big - they are shrimps" .

As in "shrimps" is possessive without the apostrophe.
