Expert Tips

Like people, shrimp come in all shapes and sizes. We've called for medium shrimp in this recipe, which provide about 31 to 35 pieces of shrimp per pound. Larger shrimp also may be used, but remember the larger the shrimp, the higher the price per pound.

For a refreshing change of pace, substitute imitation crab for the shrimp in this recipe.
