The American Shrimp Company offers 100% Wild Caught American Shrimp & Recipes

Classic Shrimp Boil

Looking to pull off the perfect get together with a shrimp boil? Then you’ve come to the right place. The ideal shrimp for boiling will have its shell on which works as both a barrier from over cooking and a seal to lock in all that great flavor.  We recommend purchasing either headless shell-on or easy peel wild caught American shrimp. Both are perfect for boiling. The main difference is if you prefer to have a easier ability to peel the shrimp once boiled. As a general rule of thumb the average person consumes about 1 pound of boiled shrimp so please plan accordingly. Below you’ll find our recommended headless shell-on shrimp and easy peel shrimp. Please also visit our recipes page for a special recipe for a Southern Style Shrimp Boil. To buy shrimp  for your shrimp boil simply visit our shop page and take advantage of our great daily deals. You can instantly save 20% when you buy 3 pounds of shrimp or more.
