Royal red shrimp live in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Alabama and Florida. Red shrimp are large shrimp that are pink even before they are cooked. They have a sweet flavor that is a bit milder than other varieties of shrimp. Royal red shrimp make a low-fat protein source for a healthy meal. You can prepare red shrimp in a variety of ways or use them in any recipe to replace other types of shrimp.
Dump whole deveined red Gulf shrimp in a large pot of boiling water combined with cayenne pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. After the water returns to a boil, drain the shrimp. Serve the Cajun-inspired boiled shrimp hot plain or with melted butter, lemon wedges and Worcestershire sauce for drizzling.
Toss peeled and deveined red shrimp with flour, seasoned with pepper and any other spices you like, and lightly fry the shrimp in a pan of hot oil or butter for four or five minutes, until the shrimp are opaque. Serve the crunchy treat alone or with barbecue sauce. Spoon the shrimp onto French bread for a tasty po'boy sandwich.
Steam peeled and deveined royal red shrimp in plain water for one or two minutes, until the flesh of the shrimp is opaque. Chill the shrimp and serve them as a salad tossed with chopped fresh fruit or vegetables and drizzled with a homemade vinaigrette.
