they love them for gumbo here....it makes it look like they piled the shrimp in their (people eat with their eyes)

put 2 pots out for sale, one with 90/110 and the other with 21/25 and I bet the pot with smaller shrimp sells first...9 out of 10 times......and typically 90/110 are WAY cheaper

I'll send you a link when I get home. Although for gumbo I prefer 36-40.
The grass shrimp are too small for my liking.

My information may be outdated as I learn this a long time ago but it is my understanding that those shrimp are cooked and peeled with high-pressure steam. They're so overdone and tasteless that they are brined in a fish sauce to impart some flavor back in them. Not much labor involved and reflected in the price.

Always wondered how they peeled them little fellers. I figured they were chemically peeled.
