Because they have a moderate water content, White shrimp have a mild flavor and medium texture. White shrimp are more firm than Freshwater Shrimp, but less than Tigers and Wild Mexicans.
Precooked makes enjoying White Shrimp even simpler! Simply thaw and enjoy! (see a few helpful hints under the cooking tab).
The scientific name Litopenaeus vannamei helps distinguish these shrimp from other shrimp varieties. White Shrimp make up over 60% of farmed shrimp globally, making them extremely accessible and affordable. This shrimp variety is a great candidate for aquaculture farming, as larvae can be successfully bred with high survival rates.
Common Country of Origin(s): Thailand, India, Ecuador, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam
The numbers attached to the shrimp description are called the “count,” which represents the number of individual shrimp that make up one pound. For instance, “16-20” means there are between 16 and 20 shrimp in one pound. Most of our shrimp comes in two pound bags, so there would be 36 to 40 shrimp in a two pound bag.
If a single number is accompanied by a U, there are “under” that many shrimp in one pound. I.e. U15 shrimp have under 15 shrimp per pound. They can also be listed as a 13-15 count.
Finally, as the numbers decrease, the size of the shrimp increase. Our 350-500 shrimp are tiny salad shrimp and the 2-4 shrimp are our jumbos. Large shrimp are often referred to as Prawns.
