Alaska Extra-Large Spot Shrimp
Our extra-large spot shrimp are packaged in 2.2 lb. boxes and the size-count is 16 to 20 per pound. These shrimp are uncooked and flash-frozen at sea to ensure premium quality.
Our frozen, vacuum-sealed, spot shrimp can be stored in your freezer for several months. Spot shrimp can be thawed under refrigeration about 12 hours before preparation. The vacuum-sealed packages can also be run under cold water to speed this up considerably.
A one pound package would be good for 2 to 3 people if serving with other entree additions. If serving as a "shrimp feast" then about twice this amount would suffice.
