Head on shell on (HOSO)
- Black tiger shrimp is available year-round and is one of Asia’s major aquaculture products.
- Large tiger shrimp tails are excellent in classic shrimp cocktails or grilled on skewers. They’re good with pasta, since they can withstand tossing with other ingredients.
- Black tigers cook more quickly than the other Penaeids. Watch them closely; they toughen if overcooked. For maximum quality, eat tiger shrimp within two days of thawing, though they will last three to four days properly refrigerated.
