With Shrimp, Size Matterscomments (1) February 29th, 2012 in Blogs
In the seafood industry, shrimp are sold by their quantity per pound—26 to 30 (26/30) or 16 to 20 (16/20), for example. In the supermarket or in recipes, they’re usually given names like large, extra-large, or jumbo, but these don’t uniformly describe the same count, since there’s no standard for the names. That’s why we always give a count as well as a name in our recipes. If you’re making a recipe from a source that doesn’t give a count, use the following guide—it’s the closest thing we’ve found to a standard.
