    Default Monday I will buy fresh gulf shrimp

    What with it being too hot to do anything outside, I've been poking around Serious Eats looking for good recipes.

    What do y'all think of this? I wonder if I really have to de vein the shrimp. It's a real pain but I'll do it if I must.

    That sounds amazing Liz Not sure about the deveining part. I do not recall deveining shrimp when I caught them wild as a kid. Just took the head off and had fun.

    Not deviling, Pat. deveining. ie taking the poop canal out. I don't do that when I make shrimp, even large ones that this recipe calls for.

    I don't bother if they're being mixed into a pasta or something but usually devein they're being served by themselves.

    I don't know what they are, just know they're wild caught from the gulf. I'll check one to be sure it's just a vein.

    You should take a trip to Joe Patti's in Pensacola. The store alone is a tourist attraction, but the Royal Reds are cheap and to die for. That's the reason I made my road trip there last December and bought 100lbs.

    They taste like lobster!

    OMG! Like lobster???? I might have to consider taking a little trip. What did you do with the 100 lbs, freeze them?

    Yes. All wild shrimp are flash frozen at sea because the boats usually stay out for weeks or months at a time. They were frozen when I got them and about 15lbs are still frozen

    We threw a few party's

    Or just pay the extra $1/lb and buy them already deveined, it's absolutely worth it. And if you do buy royal reds, cut the cook time in half, they are very easy to overcook. And the ones that taste the most like lobster are broiled rock shrimp, the best shrimp ever!

    Correct! I bring the water to a boil, dump them in and remove them after I think 60 or 90 seconds. Much longer and they are pretty nasty..

    I want to buy the Royal Reds for sure, but if they taste like lobster I wouldn't use them in this recipe on them. I'd probably steam them. There's a place in Biloxi that sells them. It's about an hour and a half from here. Brian, do you remember how much your 15 lbs. cost?

    About 1/3rd of what they would cost if they were available in KC. $7.99lb

    I don't think they make it much past the Gulf unless you have them shipped. I've never seen them at any markets near me...

    I don't use cocktail sauce on them. Just dip in garlic butter with a little white wine and maybe some Tony's.
