Prime Shrimp

Raise your hand if you love shrimp. Keep it up if you love cooking shrimp at home.

If you put your hand down, we get it. Buying seafood at the grocery store and cooking it at home can be a hassle: inconsistent product quality, messy prep, strong smells, unfamiliar meal planning.

About the Brand

In 1943, our founder, at just 16 years old, dreamed up a shrimp-peeling machine while working a summer job at his father’s seafood-packing plant in Houma, Louisiana (That’s him carrying the barrel.). This was the first of thousands of innovative solutions that have improved the way every kind of food from seafood to vegetables to baked goods makes its way into our homes.

We want to help shrimp lovers enjoy shrimp more often by creating delicious products that are easy to use. We do everything from sorting to peeling to packing to freezing with precision automation in our own domestic BAP-certified facility. This minimizes handling, protects the shrimp from abuse and offers a new standard in social responsibility and processing transparency.


What's in the box?
  • Premium raw shrimp, sustainably raised in Ecuador then peeled and deveined with precision in Louisiana. Gourmet seasonings and sauces. Bold, bright and versatile tastes designed to make any meal special. Two full servings of protein. Regardless of how much other yummy stuff is in there, every pouch contains a full 8 oz of shrimp.
How does it work?
  • Frozen pouches go directly from the freezer to the pot with no thaw step, no handling raw seafood, and no extra mess in the sink. Boil uncovered for 4-8 minutes (depending on the variety), then let rest for 2 minutes to allow a gentle finish to the cook. Serve over pasta or rice, use in tacos or wraps, add to your favorite soups or salads. Check out these easy shrimp recipes!
Can I use a sous vide method of cooking?
  • Prime Shrimp Cook-In-Bag was literally inspired by sous vide cooking. We've adapted the method to work in any kitchen without any special equipment - but of course, our product is PERFECT for use with an immersion circulator such as the Anova Precision Cooker.
Can I skewer, sear or saute?
  • Want to skewer, sear or saute? Go for it! There is nothing stopping you from cooking Prime Shrimp products on the grill, in a pan, or as indicated in a favorite family recipe. When thawing Prime Shrimp under refrigeration, it is important to open the pouch to break the vacuum seal. Frozen seafood should never be thawed under vacuum. Once thawed, shrimp should be cooked until they are pink and opaque and have reached an internal temperature of 145F.
