Colossal Shrimp "Reserve" Stock

Item #: BGS55
These truly colossal shrimp are perhaps the most coveted shrimp in the world, and are very hard to get. Wild-caught, the sweet ocean flavor is simply unrivaled. They are literally hand-selected to make sure each one is perfect, and are unpeeled, leaving your choice of preparation unlimited. PLEASE NOTE: these shrimp require peeling and de-veining prior to consumption (it's worth it we promise!).
Serves 10-12
Five pounds with 10-15 shrimp per pound

Steamed: Either peeled and deveined or whole. Steam for approximately 5-6 minutes or until opaque throughout; add Old Bay or seasoning optional. Place in ice bath upon removal to stop cooking process and prevent overcooking.  

Boiled: Either peeled and deveined or whole. Heat salted water on high until boiling, add shrimp and cook 4-5 minutes until opaque throughout. Add Old Bay or seasoning to water if desired. Place in ice bath upon removal to stop cooking process. 

Grilling: Peel and devein shrimp, marinate in olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Skewer shrimp, and grill 1-3 minutes on each side until opaque throughout.
