Our latest trip South yielded the king of shrimp, Royal Reds, bigger and better than ever! Usually 16-18 per pound, these are 10-15 count (giant!); wild-caught from the Florida Keys.
And when we say wild, we also mean heads-on, which is key to unlocking the most optimal flavor. Don't let that dissuade you; a minute of extra work is what will set our shrimp experience apart from all the rest. Preparation and cooking instructions below.
