We pre-paid for shares of fresh Maine shrimp through a local fisherman's co-op this year. We get 5 pounds of fresh shrimp a week for four weeks. Thought I'd post some qview as I did smoke a few of them. The five pound bag of shrimp that contains about 200 shrimp: A close up of a few shrimp: The shrimp are very delicate, and over cooking them results in mush. The dark areas you see in the photo's are roe.....every shrimp becomes a female, and they all carry roe at this stage in their life. After a short smoke. I just sprinkled them with a bit of Old Bay and smoked them for about 30 minutes: A mess of shells that got roasted, then simmered for stock that was used in a nice shrimp and potato chowder.
