I don't understand the "u", Craig. They are what they call "collosal", 16-20 count I believe. I always buy the bigguns because they shrink when cooked.

Thanks. I always went by the store ad. Collosal, large, medium...
If I had a bag, I'd look, but they are too expensive right now, lol.

16-20 shrimps are pretty common at 3.50lb or less.
I buy them frozen and ez-peel (deveined and split shell)

There are bigger/better ones available when I am grilling them but the price reflects that too.

Those are them, Craig, split and mostly deveined. They are never as low as 3.50, but I know it's usually below $10/lb on sale. That's why I refused to buy them for 15 something... and they weren't even gulf shrimp, they were from China.
You folks by the coast have it made when it comes to seafood. And with fuel going up, it's only going to get worse for us inlanders.

I once had fake shrimp at a vegan restaurant. They tasted like shrimp even after I knew and tasted one by itself to check. I was startled.

Seafood, $6.50 and spa setting is a tough match to make. If you can frame the special as "meatless for Lent", you can draw on all sorts of vegetarian options. We have a place here that makes a perfectly dreadful sounding, but oddly addiction imitation crab in a super thick cheese sauce that would hot the price point. It really is good and just as simple as it sounds. I would also look at a linguine and red clam sauce, using canned clams, but garnished with 2 or three fresh clams in the shell. Can you get finnan haddie or salt cod for a reasonable cost?

Thanks for the input. I do use some salt cod, Imitation crabmeat, salmon patties, yellow fin tuna & some augraten pasta dishes. The red clam sauce sounds good too.
