These are found in most of our brooks and rivers. They resemble the lobster, and are often called young lobsters.

They are boiled and served the same as crabs, or used to garnish boiled fish.

How To Cook Shrimps

Of all fish belonging to the lobster species, shrimps are the smallest. They are of two kinds, the Gulf shrimps or prawns being the largest. They are sold by the quart, already boiled, in some markets, but in the Northern cities the canned goods are convenient and very nice. Those put up by Dunbar & Co., and White, are the best.

Boiled Shrimps

Wash, and boil the same as crabs. When cold, twist the body and tail shells apart, carefully, so as not to break the meat, which remove in one piece. Serve same as crabs.
