THE SHRIMP - Royal Reds are a deep fathom species that are relatively new to the National Market. The sheer depth has kept the Shrimpers from exploiting the species. They have been celebrated in the local markets for a bit longer and could be regarded a "Best Kept Secret". The Royal Red Shrimp have the "Snap" of White Shrimp with a creamier and sweeter finish. The best culinary applications call for moderate heat and monitored cook times. The Royal Red Shrimp need no masking ingredients, but accept complimentary herbs and light spice. Small Lobster is a very accurate description of the Royal Red Shrimp's profile.
