Collection of shrimp recipesShrimp are tasty little crustaceans that come in a variety of sizes measured by how many shrimp there are in a pound. The largest size is the "Extra Colossal" which contains about 5 shrimp per pound. The smallest size shrimp is the "Extra Small" which contains about 65 shrimp per pound. Different recipes will call for different size shrimp and you should always try to get as close as possible to the size called for in the recipe.

Different size shrimp will require different cooking times also. Shrimp cooks quickly and will become rubbery and tough if over cooked. You can usually tell if it is cooked when it turns opaque with a pink tint, and they will start to curl into a "C" shape. Shrimp can be fried, broiled, baked, and grilled and can be served as appetizers, entrees, in soups and more.
