HEB Argentina Red Shrimp Question

Postby OldUsedParts » Tue Jul 11, 2017 7:54 pm

I was shopping for some jumbo shrimp today and saw these Argentina Red Shrimp. They are very large and head on but I was reluctant to try them. Soooooooo has anyone out there bought these and tried them yet :?:

Love tiger prawns, think these come from Australia, most of ours come from Vietnam, they are pretty good. I bought a bag the other day for dumplings, having the rest in a prawn cocktail later in the week.

OUP, I have had those, but I don't think that is what they called them though. They have somewhat of a little sweeter taste. They were good. I had them at a boiled seafood place in Houma called Cajun Critters. It wasn't something they had often, it was on the special board. And they were big as well.

I don't think you will be disappointed with them. The ones I had were good. But then again the boiled seafood in Houma is very good. Stiff competition over there. I had them with corn and potoato's and sausage with some mushrooms as well.

Those are the ones I buy. Only have skewered and grilled and they were fine. They are a little sweeter. Only buy them because they seem to be cheaper when i want shrimp.

I think they may be a deepwater shrimp.

thanks, Chris, the price was why I noticed them and it was almost half the cost of what I ended up buying but not the next time :tup:

The nicest I've had we're in Australia, they were strawberry prawns. Best I've had.
