Shrimp Rule the Seafood World
June 7, 2019
Shrimp is America’s favorite seafood! These petite crustaceans consistently top the list of most popular seafood consumed in the United States.
It’s no surprise. Shrimp cook quickly and adapt to a variety of dishes. People of all ages love them. In fact, it’s not uncommon to see fried shrimp offered right next to the ubiquitous chicken nuggets on the children’s menus of many seafood restaurants.
While you’re enjoying that shrimp scampi, shrimp po-boy or jambalaya, make sure your shrimp are Wild American Shrimp. Because they’re from the nutrient-rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the South Atlantic and caught by American fishermen, you can be confident these shrimp are free of antibiotics, chemicals, pesticides, and residue.
