20 lb CASE - Jumbo Argentine Red Shrimp
Known for their sweetness, Jumbo Argentine Red Shrimp are wild-caught in the cold coastal waters of Argentina. Because cold-water shrimp grow slowly, they develop a rich and complex flavor. The plump, juicy meat of the Jumbo Argentine Red Shrimp has a mild, buttery taste that perfectly balances sweet and salty.
The jumbo size of these shrimp is no exaggeration. One pound of jumbo shrimp averages about 15 pieces, and the 20 lb cases are conveniently packaged into 20 one-pound packages that are perfect for meal planning, shrimp feasts, and large events. Pull the amount of shrimp you need from the freezer at least 12 hours beforehand, let it thaw, and you are ready to prepare your meal.
Flavorful shrimp cocktails are always popular appetizers during the holidays and at family get-togethers and barbeques. Cajun, Garlic, Cheesy, Fried — no matter your flavor preference, Jumbo Argentine Red Shrimp makes for a delicious gourmet meal. So stock up today and save with a bulk savings discount.

Additional Product Info
Our Argentine red shrimp are sealed in 1 lb packages and contain an average of 15 shrimp per pound. They are headless, uncooked, and flash-frozen at sea to ensure the highest quality.
Our Argentine red shrimp are dry packed which means they do not include STP (Sodium Tripolyphoshate). STP is a chemical that seafood is soaked in and causes the retention of added water to seafood products. This negatively impacts not only the flavor and texture, but also adds extra weight, in the form of water that , in the end, the consumer pays for.
Frozen, vacuum-sealed, shrimp can be stored in your freezer for several months. Shrimp can be thawed under refrigeration about 12 hours before preparation. The vacuum-sealed packages can also be ran under cold water to speed this up considerably.
A one pound package would be good for 2 to 3 people if serving with other entrée additions. If serving as a "shrimp feast" then about twice this amount would suffice.
Shrimp are an extremely good source of protein, and are very low in fat & calories, making them a healthy choice of food. Although shrimp have a high cholesterol content, they are low in saturated fat. Shrimp contain a good amount of omega-3 fatty acids that help prevent against heart disease, circulatory diseases and many other types of illnesses. Shrimp also contains high levels of vitamin B12, zinc, iodine, phosphorous, potassium, selenium and iron, and have smaller quantities of calcium, magnesium and sodium.
