This is what our local shrimp look like. Notice they are loaded with spawn on their under sides. We used to unload tens of thousands of pounds of shrimp each day here at our dock during shrimp season in the winter. It wasn’t uncommon for us to peel them while we were unloading the boats and eat them raw. Alot of guys would snap the head off and pop the tail in their mouths shell and all and then spit out the shell after they sucked the meat out.
One of my favorite meals is pasta with the shrimp using our native shrimp. So incredibly tasty in the zugu. They are small and alot of work but the taste of fresh shrimp that has never been frozen like you get at the stores is far superior.
