I'm glad to be corrected, obiwan! Anything is better than those creepy tigers.

i've always hated them since they first flooded the market back in the eighties
they shrink too much and randomly mushy
i love white shrimp as when you bite them they are "crisp"
the shrinkage is minimal and the smell is clean

Can't ask for more than that!

Nevertheless, I'd still like to give my shrimp money to the boys down on our Gulf Coast first.

Good thing I don't have to run a professional kitchen and worry about bulk buying!

I'll pay a little more without whimpering.

Jeekinz, I see you're in Joisey. Have you tried the Fulton Fish Market in New Yawk?

THE NEW FULTON FISH MARKET AT HUNTS POINT

Probably, better than having seafood packed in ice & shipped from an on-line source.
