Mediterranean White Shrimp have excellent flesh and a delicate flavor. Wonderfully versatile for a great variety of applications. Can be eaten boiled, fried or even whole (head and shell) in smaller sizes.
There are literally thousands of species of shrimp worldwide, adapted to a wide range of habitats, though only about 20 are commercially fished. Shrimp are high in protein, low in calories, improve the LDL to HDL cholesterol ratio and lower triglycerides. They lend themselves to recipes in all types of cuisines, delicious in everything from pastas and risottos, fajitas and tacos, jambalayas and paellas, curries, kung pao noodles, Pad thais and ramens, soups and gumbos, in bowls, salads, and as ceviche.
Small size, 30/35 shrimp per pound. One 2.2 lbs package. Origin: Mediterranean Sea
