I'm thinking of making my other half, Laurie, a happy person by bringing home a 2# bag of shrimp from work. The question is, do I bring home a bag of the 16/20 count, or a bag of the 40/50 count. The 16/20's are a good size for blackening, butterflying/breading/frying, and for cocktail. However, the 40/50's are a great size for using in Seafood Gumbo File, Shrimp Fricassee, Shrimp Creole, etc. I'm leaning towards the Seafood Gumbo File, as I also have some crab in my freezer that needs to be used. Would any of you have any other suggestions, or which one would you prefer?
