Wild Gulf Coast Shrimp
The wild gulf coast shrimp are wild-caught – or free-range – from the Gulf Coast of the US, where they naturally exist. They can be distinguished into white shrimp, brown and pink shrimp. These shrimp are all warm water species recognized for their sweet taste, firm texture, crunchy meat. Aside from their color, the different varieties of the Wild Gulf Coast shrimp are very similar. The white shrimp have grayish-white shells that turn pink when cooked; the brown shrimp have light brown or tan shells that turn coral when cooked and the pink shrimp have light pink shells with a pearl-like texture that turn a deeper shade of pink when cooked.
