Cooking Tips & Recipes
Cook from frozen. Do not refreeze.
Deep Fry: (2-3 minutes)
Preheat fryer to 350°F (180°C). Fill fryer basket no more than half full. Fry shrimp for 2 – 2 1/2 minutes or until golden brown. Lightly dry with paper towels, let cool, and enjoy!
Convection Oven: (12-14 minutes)
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Place shrimp on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake in center of oven for 12 – 14 minutes, rotating the tray halfway through. Let cool and enjoy.
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.
