Did you know Americans eat more shrimp than any other seafood? According to NationalDayCalendar.com: The word “prawn” is used loosely to describe any large shrimp, sometimes known as “jumbo shrimp.” Some countries use the word “prawn” exclusively for all shrimp. Preparing the shrimp for consumption usually involves the removal of the head, shell, tail and “sand vein.” There are many ways to cook shrimp. Standard methods of preparation include baking, boiling, broiling, sauteing, frying and grilling. Cooking time is delicate for shrimp, and they are at their best when not overcooked.In addition, shrimp is low in calories and high in omega-3.
