Culinary Info Bite

Often times when you buy shrimp you will notice on the package a set of numbers such as 31/40. These numbers help identify approximately how many pieces of shrimp you will get per pound. For example, if you saw 31/40 on a package of shrimp it would mean that you will get approximately 31-40 pieces of shrimp per pound. The smaller the numbers the larger the shrimp will be in size and the larger the numbers the smaller the shrimp will be in size
