iconThe typical shrimp recipe.

  • Have you ever thought about what shrimp recipes have in common?  Did you know that you can usually substitute prawns for shrimp, and vice versa, unless specified otherwise?
  • It also doesn't generally matter what size of shrimps you use. What is more important is the weight of the drained, unfrozen, peeled and deveined shrimp which the recipe calls for.
  • Try to get fresh shrimp for all recipes, with frozen shrimp being second in preference.
  • If you are buying frozen shrimp, avoid shrimp which has been defrosted or partly thawed. It may have already started to deteriorate.
  • If you wish to use unpeeled shrimp in a recipe, just double the weight which is specified for peeled, deveined, deheaded shrimp.
  • If you see the term HOSO it means shrimp with head on and shell on.
