Truly jumbo shrimp

jlsmjlsm Posts: 843
My stepson just got accepted to a master's program with a full ride and a living stipend! He will be staying in town for two more years, and we're thrilled. (He has been the recipient of many egg cooks, and the thought of him leaving made me sad on many accounts.) He loves seafood, so I thought I would get some 3 count shrimp and some rib eyes. I've wrapped those giant shrimp in basil and bacon before, but I thought I might want to so something a little different. Any ideas?

    I'd treat them like lobsters.  Grill them and serve with clarified butter.

    all good calls guys.  My question is : is it still a "shrimp" if it's 1/3 lb?

    Biggest shrimp i have ever seen were "U-8" or eight to a pound.  These must be fresh water shrimp?

    They're probably the Asian Tiger Shrimp.  They have invaded the Gulf and are a threat to the native shrimp.  Supposedly, they are tasty, though.

    Maybe if we can get enough Eggheads on here we can win the battle and eat them all out of the Gulf and send them back.

    To me the words jumbo and shrimp don't belong together.  Kind of like almost perfect, giant dwarf or feminine logic. :D

    As has been already mentioned , crab stuffing.  Here are some U-5's I did a while back wrapped in bacon:

    Well guys, they did turn out to be U5s; a year ago, I got bigger ones, but these were the largest I could find today:

    Decided to go with Emeril's crab stuffing, though I think I'll skip the bacon  because I also got this:

    First time I've cooked a 2-inch steak. Guess I'll be trying out the reverse sear.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    That would take the pineapplebaconshrimp recipe to a whole new scale - but I bet it could be done.

    It might even solve the problem that some have identified of having the shrimp overcooked relative to the bacon.  Those shrimp would take a whole piece of bacon each and it would probably be a challenge to eat, but I'm sure it could be done if one had the will to do it.

    Here is the link to the thread with the recipe for smaller shrimp.  If you decide to do it, please let us know what modifications you make and how it worked out.

    People are always getting me and foghorn mixed up. The easy way to remember: I am 3 1/2 feet shorter and better looking. Also I have not seen forhorn with a standard poodle.
