Head and shell on
$16.00 (with tax) a pound
Why Head-on? We sell head-on shrimp to insure peak freshness. Shrimp start to go bad within 48 hours if their head is still attached. Thus, you can be sure the shrimp you are buying from us is harvested within 48 hours! Please be sure, however, to remove the head if you don't plan on cooking your shrimp immediately. After the head is removed you may freeze your shrimp for up to 3 months, or refrigerate for up to 4 days.
What about their vein? Our shrimp come with their vein (intestine) still in, but unlike your typical wild shrimp the vein in our shrimp won't have that gritty, funky taste. This is from wild shrimp shifting through sand in order to reach their food. Since our shrimp are grown in a sand and rubble free environment, the vein will simply be a darker version of their meaty flesh.
What about any added chemicals or antibiotics? No! Our shrimp are fed a natural diet consisting of algae and natural protein and no artificial additives are added to our systems. You will only be purchasing a clean, fresh tasting product from us.
