Yesterday, I saw something I've never seen before: a package of frozen "shrimp meat" for sale in the grocery.
Other packages by the same vendor were labeled as "shrimp."
The "shrimp meat" looked liked shrimp, peeled and deveined.
Unlike other packages, there was no count per pound, i.e., 16/20.
But why was it called "shrimp meat" instead of "shrimp?"
I didn't buy it.
It got me wondering: Is "shrimp meat" whole shrimp, or some kind of reconstructed-in-the-shape-of-a-shrimp processed product?
