    How many shrimp?

    • Jason G.

      It depends on the size of the shrimp, but go for about 4oz of shrimp per person.

    the carbohydrates states 226g! I don’t think that’s correct.

      Dthorpe – Sorry – I fixed it! It was 22.6 so it was just a little clerical error. Rounded up to 23g. Thank you :)

  3. Another winner! Non-Paleo kid scarfed down 5 of them.
