To my mind, nothing that is delicious in melted butter can truly be considered a major problem.

Part of me wonders if the spill had something to do with this. I mean, people are speculating that the prawn was here since the 80s. Perhaps a lot of the shrimp's larger predators were killed by the spill.

'course, I may just be (and, admittedly, probably am) wrong.

I don't know how you feel about this shrimp, but if you eat it you'll never have to prove your courage in any other way.

Well, generally speaking, you do usually have to cook it with fire before consumption.

Not always, though, as witnessed by Shanghai drunken shrimp, which is best eaten when live.

This sounds like a job for the world's tallest midget!

FTA: Some speculate that the Gulf invasion began with an accidental release of farmed prawns in South Carolina in 1988. Another theory: The prawns may have escaped from flooded industrial shrimp ponds in the Caribbean Sea during recent hurricanes.

Why isn't "because ballast tanks" the standard answer for exotic marine species? It seems like the easiest explanation, doesn't it?

mmm, pickled shrimps

FTA: "It's also tasty"

That's the only part I care about. Ship some to Cali and I'll take care of 'em for them.

/we have "invasive" mitten crabs in the Sac and American rivers
//also tasty

We're going to need a bigger butter.
 
2011-12-25 10:01:45 PM
Kill it with fire indeed. Let me know when it's done cooking, I wouldn't mind having a couple of those fresh off the grill.

And a +1 to you (I really would if I was able to.... too poor to spring for TF). That made me laugh after a truly crappy day.

"It's a large, competitive species," Reisinger said.

It's also tasty, fetching a higher market price than native brown shrimp on the New York market this month.


I fail to see the problem here.
 
2011-12-25 10:03:55 PM
Or for those that buy shrimp, that's a 1 / 2

DAMN. Can't really call them shrimp when they are that big.

Shrimp steaks for all!

FTFA: "Though no one is sure what the ecological impact will be, scientists fear a tiger prawn takeover could knock nature's balance out of whack and turn a healthy, diverse marine habitat into one dominated by a single invasive species."

Drop a rumor that they are 'rare' shrimp... and that eating them will make your wedding tackle bigger, harder, and last 10 times as long with climax firepower comparable to the Guns of Navarone.

They'll be fished to extinction within a week.

Simple solution is simple.

And slathered with half a cup of butter and 3 crushed garlic cloves in an olive oil pan!

I will happily kill it with fire, shell it, douse it with butter, lemon and cocktail sauce, and have a lovely dinner, thanks.
