Buying frozen white shrimp is a great way to add seafood to the menu and keep on top of inventory – just thaw what you need. We recommend defrosting shrimp in the refrigerator or in cold, running water. Never defrost in a warm place or microwave. Remember, shrimp are sized by number per pound (so a 16/20 count means each shrimp will weigh just under an ounce). We offer a variety of styles – consult with your Santa Monica Seafood Sales Representative to see what works best for your menu and budget.
