Royal Red Shrimp

$19.99 /LB Peeled/Deveined

Royal Reds are tender, salty-sweet and are one of the most unique harvestable species of shrimp in Florida. Unlike most shrimp, when bitten into they are tender and almost lobster-like unlike the usual crispness you find in other shrimp. They come from deep, cold water along the continental shelf, with depths ranging as deep as 2,000 ft. They do not travel and you will rarely find the outside of the Southeast. Due to their unique tenderness and sweetness, they do well in simple recipes of just on their own. They also cook in the half the time of their counterparts. If overcooked, they tend to become mushy (and not rubbery).(Pleoticus Robustus)
