Fresh Shrimp

We put up a 100 lbs of shrimp today. I broke out the fish cooker for some coconut friedshrimp. My wife made a sweet chile sauce for dipping. Hard to beat shrimp that were swimming this morning and then in hot oil this afternoon.

  • Wow, you got that right. Looks great. Having never done so, how long does it take you to clean all those?

    2 hrs to clean (shell & devein) 100#?  That's impressive!  And you've got that right you can't beat freshly caught shrimp. Looks  & sounds delicious.

    Auto correct made it "I" when should have been "It". There were three of us heading the shrimp, and we don't shell or devein before freezing. We pack our shrimp in water for freezing because we find they keep better.

    Being landlocked in Kentucky makes us envious of those wit fresh seafood at their finger tips. Beautiful cook.

    This ^^^^^^^^^^^^ is the correct way of storing them.  
    For the fried shrimp:

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.
