Shrimp are a type of crustacean seafood that is consumed worldwide and they can be found in fresh or salt water. Shrimp are creatures that have a soft shell, are filter feeders, and they live mainly at the bottom of a body of water. When preparing shrimp, the head, tail, and 'sand vein' are removed, although the tail is sometimes left attached for presentation. Shrimp comes in many sizes, so the number of shrimp per serving can vary. Generally speaking, a serving size is around 4oz.
4 ounces of shrimp equals one serving. I have found that this means about 7 jumbo shrimp or about 12-15 for popcorn shrimp. Either way quite a few pieces of shrimp!
