Yeah, you don't want to buying shrimp off a 'Fresh shrimp' truck parked on the side of a West Texas road and the truck has Minnesota plates on it.. I saw that once out near San Angelo..

I know first hand you don't want to eat any shrimp cocktail in Mexico. I was hoping someone would shoot me behind the ear for two days.

90% of domestic shrimp are frozen on boats right after they are caught. Very few actual "fresh" shrimp hit the docks to be sold directly to the public. Many of the "side of the road" guys buy frozen shrimp, thaw, bag them and sell as "fresh off the boat". Frozen shrimp has got a bad name. Shrimp are better when frozen onboard. Freezing fish changes the flavor. Freezing Shrimp does not change the flavor.

Sometimes I can taste the sodium bisulfate when they freeze the IQF shrimp offshore, but their still good. Most of the time we break the heads and freeze the shrimp ourselves. All shell fish freeze up good, you get out of the freezer what you put in it.

I'm not sure what the toughest part was, it was very tender running out of both ends.

Yes ma'am one of them ... Very sad.. cashier said she thinks food stamps don't pay for them anymore so people
started stealing them.

Cashier lied... employee theft creates more inventory 'shrink' than shoplifters.
Perhaps cashier was Very sad because of the cut back in her employee 'fringe' benefits.

Shrimp and crab legs doesn't qualify as "west Texas cuisine" anytime !!!! And this TexMex most sell ain't "below the border cuisine". You can take a lb. of hamburger, a head of lettuce, a tomato, a lb. of beans, a pkg of rice, a handful of cheese and handful of tortillas and make every dish on a texmex menu. Just give it a different name. Gotta be a profitable business.
