Who says size doesn’t matter? (Edited)



When the shrimps are as big as the steaks, I would say size matters!


These bad boys are about 1/3 of a pound. EACH.


Oh, don’t even think about trying to escape! You are so going on the barbie!

For those of you dying to know, they were about $5 each. As I post this, they are still in the bowl. Dinner isn’t for a couple of hours yet, but I wanted to share my exciting grocery store find with you. I’ll let you know how they turned out.

So what are you having for dinner?

These were so very good! I can’t wait to make them again. I’ll peel them, then wrap in bacon and grill. mmmMMM.  Deeelish!!


  1. Wow. It's like you can't even call those shrimp. Are you sure they aren't some type of mini-lobster? Or perhaps they grew up too close to a toxic waste dump?

    I hope they still taste good! Can't wait to hear!

  2. Holy crap they're the size of lobsters! I can't handle it when my shrimp still have heads and all that. I like it breaded and not even slightly resembling the animal it was when it was alive. Enjoy your lobster...I mean, shrimp.

  3. Those are just freaky big. Talk about an animal not living up to it's name.

    I WAS excited about having pizza tonight, but now I want a giant shrimp or four.

  4. Actually these big fellows were prawns. Since this was my first time grilling these, I consulted an Aussie friend of mine here and he gave me some great tips. From what I heard during and after dinner, I was a good student and they tasted wonderful. Of course when you drink enough wine, most anything will taste good.

  5. Yea now thats a dinner that i believe i could eat.Someone is a good cook, it is both of you all.

  6. I seriously thought you scored some lobsters over there!

  7. Wow!! Now those are some big Shrimp!! Lucky you!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
