If you are a shrimp lover, I can guarantee you that you will fall in love with it again after learning this fun fact.
Shrimp is called "Ha" in Cantonese. What does it remind you? Doesn't it sound like someone's laugh? That's the reason why shrimp is one of the MUST-haves during Chinese New Year or any other special occasion.
When it comes to buying shrimp in America, it comes in frozen form which, in a way, has a longer shelf life. So, I stock them up when it is on sales.
The bigger the size of the shrimp, the less of the count in a pound. Most of the time, it is relatively more expensive, but less work in shelling. I like my shrimp to be on a bigger size. So, I always have 16-20 count/pound ones in my freezer. 24-30 count/pound is another great option. It really depends on your preference.
