Here is some smart shopping
information on that ever popular and oh so tasty seafood - Shrimp!
Shrimp are graded by the number of pieces, or "count", there are in a pound.
When you see the size "10/15 count", that means there are between 10 and 15 pieces of shell-on shrimp in
a pound. Even shelled shrimp were originally graded for size in this "shell-on" form, before
cleaning. Don't be fooled by advertisements that say "Jumbo" or "Large";
ask for the "count" per pound for the true size of the shrimp.

How to Cook Shrimp
If the shrimp are the FROZEN
peeled and cleaned you DO NOT thaw them. If they are the SHELL ON shrimp you can peel and clean them either BEFORE or
AFTER cooking. To cook the shrimp- Bring a pot of plain water to a full boil. Put the shrimp in the boiling water. The water
will stop boiling- when the water begins to boil again pour the shrimp into a container and let it cool naturally. After it
has cooled down just rinse the shrimp- pat them dry and CHILL in a covered container. You can cook them a day ahead of time
without losing any quality.
