All about Shrimp
Three types of
Shrimps are important for our selection of the finest Shrimp Receipes: Coldwater, freshwater and
Freshwater Shrimp: One of the
largest Shrimp types (sometime over one foot and over one pound) which
are available farm-raised and wild-caught. The taste is very mild and soft. They have bright blue shells.
Freshwater shrimps are a delicacy for
Shrimp Scampi Receipes and can be often found in gourmet seafood
Coldwater Shrimp live in the deep water of the sea where
the water is much colder. Their quality and taste is of superior quality.
There are two types of Coldwater shrimp (also called deep sea shrimp)
around the world: One type lives in the northern
hemisphere Oceans and the "Chilenian Shrimp" can be found in the South
Pacific region. Coldwater Shrimp is wild-caught and very small.
Warmwater Shrimp are the most popular Shrimp used for
Shrimp Scampi Receipes in the United States. Warmwater shrimp can be
wild-caught or farm-raised. They are grouped as follows:
Very popular Shrimp type due to the relatively low price. They are
primarily from Asia where there are called Black Tiger Shrimp. They
have black and gray colured shells. When cooked they have a bright
red shell and the meat is white. Tiger Shrimp shrink more than other
Shrimp when cooked. Very mild flavour.
Shrimp: Wild-caught in the Gulf of Mexico and along the
south-east Atlantic Coast. They are also caught in Mexico,
China, India and Ecuador. White Shrimp Scampi have a sweet taste
and firm meat. The farm-raised white shrimp has a slightly milder flavor and have
in most cases a less firm texture.

dark pink and the meat is white with pink skin tones when cooked.

cooked. Their meat is white with coral shin tones.
