Fresh Gulf Shrimp in Barbecue Butter

Fresh Gulf Shrimp in Barbecue Butter

Fact: Almost all shrimp you buy is frozen at sea or shortly thereafter. More than likely, “fresh” shrimp is actually thawed. Truly fresh shrimp appears more translucent than thawed shrimp, and its highly perishable nature makes it rarely available. The United States imports 80 to 90 percent of the shrimp its residents consume, so it stands to reason that the product is shipped frozen.
