Shrimp is sold by size and the sizes are expressed in counts per pound. For example, 16/20 means 16 to 20 shrimp per pound. Sweet and flavorful — extra jumbo shrimp aren't just an oxymoron; they're the perfect size for skewers, scampi, or stew. They're big enough to stand up to curry, Creole seasonings, and other spicy preparations. These shrimp are peeled, deveined, and ready to cook; you can add them directly to stews, soups, sauces or risottos. Boil, steam or pan-fry them only until they're just opaque.
